Bee Blessed Starflowers for April
This month our Bee Blessed Block is the Starflower block. We have asked for blocks with a coloured solid background (not our usual white) with contrasting scrappy stars. I think these will look brilliant when they are all gathered together. Why not have a wee look at the ones already popping up on our flickr page?
Told you they looked good, didn't I?
Given that some of you lovely peeps have already been dashing off your starflowers I thought it was time I got my bum in gear and added my contribution for the month.
I went with green solid and am still waivering as to whether it was a right choice or not. It was supposed to pick out the green in the two blue prints but I'm not sure that worked quite so well as it did it my head. Oh well, here they are anyway.
If you fancy joining us and making a block or two to donate to Bee Blessed, there are two different tutorials you can use this month to achieve your 12.5" unfinished block:
Ellison Lane Quilts tutorial very usefully provides the cutting measurements for making two blocks at once.
Modify Tradition has the measurements if you just want to make a single block.
Go on, you know you want to!
