I finished up my blocks for the 4x5 Bee this weekend. In this bee, the members of the bee give their chosen colors, and then each person makes a block design in those colors using her own fabric. I used Lee's Herringbone tutorial from Issue 5 of Fat Quarterly.
Jill asked for apple green, robin's egg blue, and touches of red and white.
Oranges and blues for Lauree
Muriel asked for aqua, brown, and touches of red.
Denise requested orange, aqua, and red. (I hope I can keep these straight when I mail them out!)
Angela asked for lime, aqua, and cerise. I made the herringbones go in opposite directions in this one. When they were going in the same direction, the solid cerise strips were almost lining up (but not quite), and that bothered me.
(Shh...don't tell the other blocks, but this one is my favorite.)
And here's mine, in all of its yellow/gray glory.
Glad to be finished with these! Can someone tell me how to take less sucky pictures of bee blocks?
I'm linking up to Sew Modern Monday!!
