I finished my March block for Stash Bee the evening of the 31st. Jan wanted us to make a block following this tutorial. It's not evident from the picture, but the block finishes at 17 inches! I can't wait to see Jan's finished quilt when it all comes together.
Yesterday I finished the March block for Simply Solids. Charisma wanted an asterisk block, and I ended up loving this block. The instructions were written without diagrams, so it was a bit confusing when I first read it over. However, everything began to make complete sense once I followed the step-by-step instructions. It's rather like turn-by-turn directions instead of using a map.
As it turns out (and I'm still not sure how I managed this), I am the queen bee this month for both Stash Bee and Simply Solids. I had been looking at different block options for a long time, but all of sudden with April looming, I had to make some final choices. For Stash Bee,I chose Road to Oklahoma, and for Simply Solids, I chose a paper-pieced Star Block.
Finally, these were my February blocks for both bees, which I never got around to posting about.
