January Bee Blocks

Check out some of my recent bees-ness...

Scrap-Bee Block
Dustin asked us at Scrap-Bee Block to make him this donkey block.  These were 1.5" squares and HST's.  A total of 195....  Eeek!  These were no fun cutting, but I loved the end result.

Do.  Good Stitches block.
Jenn asked us to make Crazy 9 patch blocks in brown and olive green colors.  I love how these came out and they were really easy to make.  I used this tutorial from Elizabeth Hartman at Oh, Fransson! 

Overall, these were both fun to make.  I'm not feeling too overwhelmed, but I'm sure I will. 

Stay posted for more blocks, peeps!



  1. 195 squares?!? Wow! That's some dedication! Was there an easy method to it? Like did you do strips and then cut them? I love that you have a blog now, welcome!! :)

  2. I did some strip sewing but very little. Most of them had to be cut individually and pieced one by one too.... I know March is your month, so please don't pick this block! LOL! :)

  3. Wow - 195 squares and HSTs is quite the block! It's just so tempting to sign up for the bees, though!
