This month's ScrapBeeLicious Queen was Liz at Beadqueene's Bits & Baubles and she asked for 2 Star Value blocks. This block pattern is gorgeous and the full quilt design that it creates is really something special.
But these blocks are made up of very small squares (at least in order to make a 12" block, which we were!) - 2" and 2.5" blocks. I was kind of concerned that my scrap bin didn't have enough low volumes to make each square unique. I guess that means that I blocked out all the fabric buying mania, because when I added some strips from my most recent purchases, I had MORE than enough to work with.
|Only about half the trimming from 1 block!!|
But isn't all the work worth it? I certainly think so!
Of course I couldn't resist doing a bit of fussy cutting - this little Aladdin is my favorite addition.
And this is really a perfect bee block, because I simply cannot imagine having to make a quilt's worth of blocks like this all on my own. It would make most of us crazy! Wise choice for the bee, Liz - your quilt will be stunning!
