All about the Bees ....

I am very happy to have completed all my Bee commitments for this month, and as if three last month wasn't enough I have signed up for another Mini Bee!!  Nicky from Mrs Sew and Sow put a call out for participants for a mini bee to make quilts for Siblings Together and I thought I would sign up for this great cause.
 
February's request was simple in technique but not so easy for my stash - 11 strips of blue and green fabrics suitable for a boy cut into 2.5" strips and sewn together.  I have to say the majority of my shelves hold more 'girl' fabric!  Apologies for the night photography which does not reflect a true colour.
 
 
February's Stash Bee request was for a scrappy, strippy 1/4 log cabin type block which gave me a good chance to go through all my strings.  I like this type of block and have set to making up a few more to one day be my scrap quilt.

 
The Bee Hive request was for the Checker block.  I loved making this.  It came together so quickly and was really satisfying to stitch.  Gina asked for the black/grey HST to be reversed on each block ........ so that's what she got.



And last but not least the Neighbourhood Block Swap.  My partner this month is all the way in Noumea in New Caledonia and she was very minimal in her requirements - just not chocolate, browns and tans!


 
I'm Queen Bee in March for the Stash Bee so I had better get my thinking cap on! x
