Stash Bee 2014 – February Blocks

During our snow days this week, I finished up the February blocks for the Stash Bee.  Our Queen for this month is Diane who blogs at The Cheshire Quilter and she requested applique blocks with hearts and/or flowers.

That’s it.  No color preferences, no preference on how we appliqued (hand or machine) or what stitch we used.  I honestly had more trouble putting these blocks together because, with the lack of specific guidance, I was questioning everything I was doing!  I hope Diane likes what I came up with!

I have never really done applique before so I decided to stick with machine applique as that seemed easier to learn than hand stitching.

As I started working on the blocks though, I found it fun so I made her a few.  Who doesn’t love a little variety?  🙂

And with it being right around Valentine’s Day, I had to make one that was a little festive!

I’ll be putting these in the mail soon.  They’re heading across the pond as Diane lives in the UK!
