The blocks that I made this month for the Stash Bee have definitely inspired a new project in my head (Just what all we quilters need right? Another quilt plan in the queue!). Shena B, who blogs at Apple Pie Patchwork, was our Queen Bee for the month and she requested Scrappy Mountain blocks.
I’ve seen these blocks around blog land before but never knew how to make them. Turns out they go together really quickly! Shena wanted a scrappy look with each block using 1 bright, modern print and 1 low volume / light colored print. Here’s the fabrics I pulled for this month:
As I said, these blocks go together really quickly. They just require HST and then with a little slicing and rearranging, you’re done!
I made two sets of blocks for a total of 4 quadrants. Here the second color combination. Aren’t the birds fun? 🙂
Since there are lots of different ways to arrange these blocks, Shena requested that we not sew them together so that she can play with layouts once she has everyone’s blocks and decide which direction she wants to go.
Can’t wait to see what she decides to do with them!
