Bzzzz!!!

{That's the sound of Bee Blocks being born!} 
November is my month for do. Good Stitches.  (I'm so excited!!) I decided on the Garden Fence block from Hyacinth Designs.  I've seen a few of these quilts floating around Flickr and Blogland and I'm kind of obsessed with them!  I have also been dying (dying, I tell you!) to make a quilt using ye olde aqua/turquoise/orange/gray scheme - so BAM!  my bee block came together!  Instead of the white we're using Kona Ash for the borders and connecting bits.  I already got my first 4 blocks in the mail (I'm not saying for sure, but I may have spotted the envelope, dropped my lunch bag like a hot potato, and thrown the blocks on my design wall within 9 seconds of coming home that day!) and I just saw more lovelies pop up in the Flickr Group!!!  I love 'em, I love 'em, I love 'em!!!

I made 4 blocks of my own over the weekend
Clearly the color is a little off...that's actually Ash in all of them...not periwinkle, damnit!!

I might need to make more to finish off the quilt top (I hope I do...I love making them!) - these blocks were so easy peasy that I wanted to make a TON  (yep, 2,000 pounds of quilt blocks!...or 907 kg for my EuroPeeps!) - but I'm going to be good and wait until the end so I know what colors to use.  It's really hard for me to be good though!

  1. What are the oranges you used in your blocks? I have some Kona 'Tangerine', but I was afraid it will be entirely too orange and will look not good. BUT now that I'm looking at your blocks, I'm thinking it might fit in!!!!

  4. Those are great blocks! The orange/aqua color combo never gets old in my book.
