I've just completed the blocks for my very first mini bee ever.
There's a whole group of quilters doing this over at the flicker group.
There are 6 people in each "hive." Each person tells the others two or three colors that they want their quilt to be. Each person then makes the same block in each color palette that the others have chosen.
So I made five blocks to send out to others. I also made a block for me, in the colors that I chose, as a way to test the pattern.
In the end, after I receive my blocks, I'll have 6 different blocks made with different fabrics. I can't wait to get mine and see how they go together.
Here is a picture of the blocks I made.
As you can see, the colors are very different. Some are for boys' quilts, so I didn't want anything too girlie.
I had a good time making them and now I'm sending them off!
