Stash Bee 2014 – August Blocks

August, you say?  But it’s nearing the end of September.  I know, I know.  I was a little late in making my blocks for the August Queen Bee in my Stash Bee hive.  But I made her an extra so hopefully that helps to make up for my lateness!

Our queen for August was Melanie B.  She requested an X-Plus block in bright colors with a grey solid background.  I was really kind of excited when I saw that she’d chosen this block because I’ve pinned multiple pictures of X-Plus quilts that I love so I thought it would be fun to actually put together a few of the blocks for one.

Melanie wanted us to pick print fabrics that were “colorful”, “wild”, “60s” and “bright”.  That is definitely not my normal color palette but I had fun digging through my stash to try to put together combinations that would fit that request.  I hope she likes what I came up with!

Melanie said she was going to put together our blocks into a bed-sized quilt to give to her mom and stepfather.  They just got married last month (which is part of what threw off the timing of these blocks).

My blocks went out in the mail this morning on their way to California!  I hope Melanie likes them and that they play nicely with her other bright X-Plus blocks!

  1. I made these blocks for a bee last year and fell in love. They’re definitely on my to-do list for *me*! There are so many fun variations in colours and fabric placement 😀
