February is My Month!

I’m queen bee for February in the Brit Bee.

I stewed and wrangled over ideas for a while, and nothing seemed quite right! So I went back to my Pinterest Inspiration Board and it all started to come together.

I had pinned this beauty from Red Pepper Quilts a while ago …

…. and thought it would make a wonderful wallhanging above my bed.  I don’t have a headboard, so the large wall space will easily accommodate this.

Now my bedroom is decorated in soft browns (!!) and duck egg blues. I will never apologise for liking the colour brown, but I love my Brit Bee-ers too much to inflict the colour on them!

So I’ve asked them to make me the scrappy duck egg blue parts of the giant star.  The half blocks look like this:

The other half of these blocks will be paired with natural linen or brown solid.

And being the chancer that I am, I’m also asking them to make me another block.  This is a 2 block bee afterall!

The 2nd block will be for a completely different quilt, using my recently acquired vintage fqs.  Again, I had pinned this beauty, but wanted to reverse the solids and patterns.  So the block will look like this:

I have a particular affection for the colour purple!

And because I’m such a kind hearted queen bee (if a demanding one!) I have pre-cut EVERYTHING!

I can’t wait to get my blocks back, some of which will be hand-delivered (over there)!  Squeeeeeeee!
