There's no good reason, really, why this month's Bee Sewcial assignment kind of freaked me out. In a word, think "reflection," presented by Karen/capitolaquilter. A beautiful palette, a Pinterest board for inspiration, and a blog post with clarification. Honestly, when I finally set to do my blocks, they came together easily and I really enjoyed making them. Go figure.
I knew this first one was simplistic, but that's what I was after. Measuring 11"x15", I turned it every which way and liked this orientation the best.
I was actually a bit sad when this second block was done, and I may need to expand on the design another time. It measures 12"x19.5". Like the block above, the teeny-tiny bits add a nice little emphasis.
Whew. Mission accomplished and all that fretting for nothing. Watch the #BeeSewcial hashtag on Instagram for all of the bee's blocks, and there's a running list of my monthly blocks below. I've now received all my blocks for my month in June, so it's time to come up with a plan for them. Yikes!
