February Bee Blocks

February’s bee block were a great variety and each one fun to make.

First up was a cute TV block.  February’s queen will add some antennae and after quilting some buttons for the knobs.  This one worried me when I first read the pattern.  There were many little (to me) pieces, 1 x 1.  Started to psych myself out before I even started to sew.  I tackled each piece and won.  The block measures 16.5 x 16.5.  It turned out quite cute.  Can hardly wait to see this quilt completed.  #StashBeeHive2 TV block post

Next up was the Checker Block by Blossom Heart Quilts.  This is block that I had done before, so it went together quickly.  Since it was HST, there was a spare in the orange and purple, so made a second block.  #swarmlilypad

Last, but not least is the Houndstooth Block by Blossom Heart Quilts.  Another that I made in a hive last year.  This too was a quick and easy block. #IGHoneyBees2018

I am the queen in March for one of my bees, so need to decide on a pattern and make a few test blocks soon.

    What I love about your Checker blocks are the fabrics you chose. The orange combined with the low volume prints is fantastic! An entire quilt of those blocks in those fabrics would look stunning. Thanks for sharing them on MCM!

    Hi Jan,
    That TV block is SO cute! I have never seen a block like that before. I hope I get to see the finished quilt. I can just imagine how cute that would be with all the different TV screens. I look forward to seeing what you choose for your Bee block. ~smile~ Roseanne

    These are great blocks. I love the T.V. block and I think we will need to do this at my guild and I love the fabric in your checkers blocks.

    It will be nice to be queen in March, if only for a month, right? Great blocks, and the TV one is especially cute. Thanks for linking up with Design Wall Mondays, I appreciate you.

    These are all lovely blocks.
    I have not joined a Bee but often see the results in different posts. It must be inspiring to see all the different variations.
