I finally had time to work on my test block for the 4×5 modern Bee last night. When I was done I literally sat & stared. Then I paraded it around the house & made my husband stare at it for a while, shamelessly asking for praise.
Now, I’m not normally so self-congratulatory, but this block is stunning. STUNNING!
I absolutely LOVE it. I am pretty sure this is the best thing I’ve ever made.
This morning I just sat & held it for a while, admiring my hard work.
Then I interrupted the kids & made them admire my work too. (They did their part & told me how pretty it was!)I am so looking forward to making more of these blocks. This block is the reason I wanted to join a Bee. Little Miss Shabby made these for a Bee & it instantly made me want to be a part of something so beautiful. The instructions on how to make the block are here. (I had to mess with the scaling a little when printing so make sure you always check the inch scale after you print!)
I had originally chosen a different block, but I tried it & HATED it! I actually only made half the block & then gave up. I was wasting too much fabric.
I’m really happy I decided to give this one a try. I’m off to stare at it some more!
