This post is about blocks that I made for a quilting bee. Read more about bees (what they are, how to join them, etc.) in this post. You can also check out Quilting Bee Blocks for more information about bees in general.
These are Jenni's blocks for the Bee-autiful Quilting Bee. Jenni sent a bunch of strips of Katie Jump Rope, cut to varying lengths and widths, as well as some white solid and embroidery supplies. She asked for blocks that featured some kind of woodland-themed embroidery in them.
I will admit that I was scared of these blocks, because I don't really know how to embroider!
In the end, I decided to divide the Katie Jump Rope into warm and cool colors and do a "daytime" and "nighttime" themed block. This is the daytime block.
And, this is the nighttime block. These blocks are 12.5" x 12.5".
Thank you so much to Modern Domestic for letting me hang out and work all day Saturday (between my class in the morning and PMQG event in the evening). Thanks especially to Amy for her help with the embroidery!
While I was at Modern Domestic, I also finished Rachel's blocks (for the next month of the same bee). Rachel sent along Heather Ross prints (and a few others) and some white solid. She asked that some of Heather's Munki Munki fabric be framed by white and that the blocks be pieced in the manner of Denyse Schmidt's ubiquitous Drunk Love In a Log Cabin design.
Here is the first block.
And here is the second. These blocks are 10.5" x 10.5".
I hope you like these, Jenni and Rachel! They will be in the mail tomorrow.
