    New Quilting Bee February, 2017

    Well, we are starting our second month of the New Bee. I'm so glad to see so many join in and enjoy making the blocks. I hope everyone that made January's will also do February's.

    The one stipulation is that when you have made your block, you must post a picture in order to be in the next month.
    The blocks will be 10 finished.

    This month's blocks have been chosen by Sauki1 (Angie). I hope you will try them & post pictures. We welcome new participants. Just send me a PM or post on the New Bee, I will see that you want to join in. Here are the two block patterns plus a printable version of how to make 8 HST at a time. Enjoy.

    I like the pinwheel technique where you sew around 2 squares (right sides together) , cut an X & then assemble pinwheel. NO HSTs.

    I love the second block ! The first is cool, too, but I'm a sucker for pinwheels, and this secondary design really has pizzazz.

    These look like fun blocks. Where do we find January's blocks?

    Zozee, you know you can do either or both blocks, or make two of one block, whatever you'd like. But it's always good to challenge ourselves to do something different, soooo..

    Jannie, if you will go to the thread under HOME, Block of the Month & Week, New quilting bee 2017 you will find January's blocks.. The first is on the first page, "Album Frame" , then on page 7, #137 is the second block "Spinning Blades". These are all 10" blocks, finished. These are your blocks to keep, make one or both. It started out that we'd do one block a month, but so many finished early, thought I'd throw in another block. Welcome & have fun, post pictures and chat..

    Some great looking blocks here. Angie, aka Sauki1, Thanks for posting the Grandmother's Favorite block in just the 3 colors. I, also, have a limited palette in my primary fabric and really don't want to go outside those colors. I like how you used the colors. I, also, need to keep my primary fabric as the larger piece because the pattern on the fabric is really too big for this project.

    Thanks Barb for pointing this out. I love the color combinations so far, but didn't think about the fact that this set was done in just three colors as I was looking at the pattern more than the colors. By making me more aware of the colors I think it will help me in deciding what I want to do with mine.

    Sauki1, Oksewnsew and Chazzz, great looking blocks! Can't wait to get started on mine, maybe this weekend. Just arrived in Alabama yesterday and need to get my sewing room in order and help DH with the yardwork. I'm thinking of starting over with the January and February blocks in a different colorway.

    Thanks.. One thing about making these blocks for yourself is you can make them scrappy or in a theme. Have fun getting your room in order.
