I didn't have the heart to send back Eileen's fabric for the Sew Buzzy Bee until I made one more block. My brain was obsessed with trying a light/dark version of a string block.
Amy of the It's Sew Easy Bee-ing Green Bee asked for simple, improv, square in square, less is more blocks. Mostly, she asked us not to think too much when sewing it. I like this block a lot and I think I need to explore this aesthetic again soon.
And, it is the end of another quarter in the 3x6 Bee. I use two and a half months to dream about my 6 blocks being done. Then I slowly make one of 6. Then I become obsessed and sew like a madwoman until I finish all of them. This quarter I used the star pattern from sewtakeahike's funky peppermint table runner pattern. Then I trimmed the blocks to 8.5x9" and sashed them to get a 12.5" square block. Below are all 6 blocks in the colors requested by my swapees.
