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!
