A Bee Block

Abigail was the June queen bee for my Stash Bee hive, and she picked a super fun block! This was my first time making this one, and while it took a bit of time to cut fabric, I really enjoyed the final product.

And maybe, just maybe, I started cutting 2.5" squares for a postage stamp quilt. I mean, I was already cutting a whole bunch...why not???

With the exception of the low volume squares, all of the colored squares were from scraps. I hauled out my bags of scraps and dumped them out, grabbing pieces that spoke to me--that didn't have brown--and were the right size.

And here's the finished product! I'm not gonna lie, some of those points are sharp. I think Abigail is going to have an amazing quilt when all is said and done!


  1. Beautiful block; it is going to make a very striking quilt for sure! Also, hurray for scraps and set up sewing spaces. :)

  2. I made this block last year in for the Stash Bee and I LOVED it.

  3. What a fun block with so many possibilities! Glad to see you are up and sewing in your new space! 😊

  4. Can't wait to see it!!! I just love the block I chose and am already in love with the quilt to be! Thanks Audrey.

  5. What a pretty selection of little squares. The block turned out so cute. Greetings from over at Stash Bee Hive 8. =)


Thanks for leaving me a note! You've made my day!
