Bee Blocks–Star Light, Star Bright 3x6 Bee

 

I managed to finish all my Bee Blocks for the Star Light, Star Bright 3x6 Bee that I am in on Flickr, which means I can now begin my Bee Blocks for the Sampler hive I am in. 

This block is for Linda, Hive caretaker, she asked for a block with the colours that you find in a coleus plant.  I think the Joel Dewberry fabric on the large star points is perfect for this.

This block is for Sue, I love, love this colour combination, I also went with this combination but added pink into the mix too. For this block I used some scraps I had left over from my Christmas Vintage Holiday Quilt and also some scraps from my Swoon Quilt.

Lisa, went for light yellow, light blue and a little bit of pink red and green, so I couldn’t resist adding some Vintage modern for the centre block.

I love the large star points in this block, it is amazing how such a traditional block can look so modern and different with the right fabric. The large star points are Laurie Wisburn – Tufted Tweets.

Brandy asked for low volume, with a pop of colour, I had a hard time deciding what fabric to use, but I think this works.  For my pop of colour I used a Laurie Wisburn fabric.

Megan asked for aqua orange and green, this Joel Dewberry Heirloom fabric is just perfect for this colour combination and luckily I had some left over from the Amy Butler Birdie Sling Bag that I made.

And here they are together! I am going to have to make a star quilt.  I love this block, its easy and fun to do.

I am tempted to do the same blocks again for the sampler hive that I am in, I think that stars are a popular block and I had a lot of fun doing them, and I think the ladies in the Bee will like them too. I just have to wait and get some feedback before going ahead with the. If not I might have a go at some churn dash blocks instead.
