A totally new-to-me block was the Ogee block that Mary/QuiltGenius of the Always Bee Learning asked for. This is my one bee where I get sent the fabrics, and it's always fun to see what my bee-mate has chosen. Mary did an awesome job cutting out the pieces for this block, so that definitely helped! But this was one I had to lay out completely and then piece each component as I carefully 'built' the block. Just for reference, Cristy/Sew Much Like Mom posted this unique technique for curves on Ig. I was too far along to try it this time, but it is interesting none-the-less.
Melissa/~Me1issa of the FAITH Circle of do. Good Stitches chose Shape Shifter blocks for us. These have the most unique construction process. In general you start with WOV strips, and since I didn't have any in the colors needed, I complicated the process for myself by using fat-quarters. But once I straightened that out, these came together like magic. Each of the small blocks in the photo are 7" unfinished.
And lastly, for That Stash Bee, Ginny/fishcreekstudio had us do mini churn dash blocks that are 6 1/2" unfinished. Easy right? In reality yes, but I got chain-piecing and mixed up my colors and texts and pretty much had to unpick everything and start over. Gee whiz. I love them finished though and kinda wish they were mine to keep. sigh
I haven't received many Rolling Diamonds back from my Mid-Century Modern girls, but am really looking forward to getting those! But still. Another round of bee blocks under the belt.
