Stash Bee 2016 Blocks
Friends, I had the honor of hive mama-ing for Stash Bee Hive 5 this year. This was my third year being a hive mama, and while I won't be doing it next year due to increasing home school commitments and the fact that I will have a very new baby, it has been a lovely experience. I'm a big fan of Stash Bee.
Sign-ups for the 2017 year opened up yesterday, and if you've been considering joining, I thought you might like to take a look at some examples of blocks you might be asked to make. I asked for the Five Crosses block in the center of the collage, and I received a lovely batch of blocks that I turned into a quilt for my friend K.
One of my favorite parts of the bee is that it allows me to make blocks I wouldn't normally make, often using color palettes that are outside of my 'usual'. I had a super fun year with a super fun hive, but I'm pretty sure the collage gives that away!
