A Month of Triangles!

There’s been a distinctive Triangular theme to this month’s bee blocks!

MIB Triangles for Annaliese 001

Anneliese (Modern Irish Bee) wanted her equilateral triangles sewn into rows of 10.  I had a bit of trouble with these naughty boys, but clipping their wings with this handy tool soon sorted them out!

Anneliese also asked for a donation Trip-along block to make into a charity quilt. This one took no time at all to make (I promise it isn’t as wonky in real life as it looks here!)

In Brit Bee this month, Jo sent us some yummy low and high volume Liberty prints, already cut into triangles.

She asked for 2/3rds low volume and 1/3rd high volume, in any shape we liked.  I’m calling this huge block my ‘Liberty Love Triangle’!!

Finally, Sarah (Hipbees) sent us some red & cream prints and gave us free reign to choose any block we liked!  And guess what I chose – NOT TRIANGLES! LOL!

This is the Antique Tile block, and it is one of my new favourite blocks to make.  I’ve seen it made up in many different types of fabric and I’ve yet to be disappointed with how it looks.

I also got a Bee Blessed block made.  This month we are making super easy 16 patch blocks.

And after trimming 40 Bee Blessed blocks this month too, I think I’m all blocked out now!

Happy Friday everyone!
