Bee Blocks for One Shabby Chick!

Here are my two blocks for Amber of One Shabby Chick. She wanted Denyse Schmidt-esque blocks, which I've never attempted before, but I really like how they turned out! For the {Bee}autiful VQB.

Tomorrow... my first go at HEGAXONS! (many thanks to Melanie!)

Gorgeous! I especially love the tiny square in the middle of the blue block. :)

Good luck with the hexagons!

Leslie said...

these are stunning!

Stephanie said...

I really love the last block on your post, very cool :)

Beth said...

love the pinkey/orange block!
If you are making a lot of hexagons to sew togher (not just flowers) I would suggest joining your hexagons with a lagger stitch, it makes the seams lay flater, and doesnt make them look scrunchy..
I figured this out after i made my second hexagon doll quilt. have fun sewing :)

Hey Cristin, I've joined Melanie's piece-along too! Can't wait to get started. Your bee blocks are lovely, by the way. :-)

I really like your blocks! Is that a shot cotton in the blue one?

Cristin said...

Britt - yes, I believe it is shot cotton... I've never worked with it before, but I think I like it! Its a bit more *fragile* than regular quilting cottons, but very pretty!
