Hipbees Queenie!

I’m Queen Bee for September in Hipbees!

I thought long and hard about what block to set my lovely friends, in this relatively new bee, and came up with this:

This is a take on the friendship braid, only with a little more wonk!  I first saw it over on Tallgrass Prairie Studio, where Jacquie calls it Free Pieced Chevron.  There’s a great tutorial over there on how to make one if you fancy having a go.

It was uber simple to make (which I know will appeal to my Hipbees!) and as I had to base a block around using scraps, it ticked the box on that score too.  I’m posting all the colour coded scrap bags out tomorrow, with my addition of skinny Klona grey sashing and white borders.

I’m looking forward to seeing these rainbow blocks come together.

Have fun ladies!
