New Blogger's Bee Blocks August through January

As part of the New Blogger's Hop back in the summer of 2014 hosted by Beth of Plum and June, a number of bees were created by the members.  I joined a US based bee that we are calling the New Blogger's Group Bee.

For this bee, the queen of the month sends out block instructions and we make two blocks from our own fabrics and send them to her by the end of the month. I have not posted any bee blocks in a while so here are some from the last few many months...

I blogged about the July blocks and finished quilt by Pam @ Sewing Wilde previously here.

For August, Pam @ Quilting Makes My Heart Sing wanted some dash churn blocks using medium value prints.  My blocks are shown below and you can see her finished quilt here.

For September, Marcia @ Cozy Capatiller wanted some 9 patch blocks.  I totally forgot to take pictures of these before I sent them away.

For OctoberKate @ Thread Everywhere wanted either two 12" maple leaf blocks or one 18" maple leaf block.  I used some Free Spirit green fabric on a gray background for the larger version of the leaf.  You can see her finished quilt top in this post.

For NovemberJill @ Pie Lady Quilts wanted some free pieced trees on a neutral background.  I have not done much improv sewing so these blocks were a lot of fun for me.  They wound up measuring about 12" x 18".

For DecemberStephanie @ Late Night Quilter wanted some feathers using jewel tones.  She is going to applique them onto a quilt so we did not have to make a background for the feather blocks.

For JanuaryChristina @ Wips and Tuts wanted what she called the $2,000 dollar bee block.  This was a fun, but complex block to make having 20 flying geese in each block.

The bee has been a great way to meet new wonderful quilty women, I am looking forward to being the "queen bee" in next month!
