The Bee Knees Block

I’m part of a new quilting bee called the Bees Knees.

A few weeks ago I received my first fabric in the mail- a Moda Bella White and two fat eighths of Lecien Happy Mochi Yum Yum from Sherri of A Quilting Life.

She said she wanted a sampler and that she loved pinwheels, stars, log cabins and houses.  The finished block needed to measure 12″ x 12″ but otherwise the block was up to us.

I looked around for block inspiration and found a block I liked on Flickr.

And last night I my finished block.

For the most part, it was an easy block to figure, flying geese and half square triangles.  But I had to puzzle over the outside center blocks for a few minutes.

It occurred to me that I might try making flying geese with the turquiose and white, then turn it around and add the Happy Mochi fabric like another flying geese.  I’m so glad it worked like a charm.

Now I just need to get it sent in the mail.  But before I do, I’m toying with the idea of making another block, since I still have fabric left over, and this time adding some warm colored fabric.  Either way it was a fun little project.

I’m so glad I said yes to the Bees Knees!
