Bee block time

Red and Aqua bee test block
I've decided to join in a quilting bee - this is my first ever bee and so far it sounds like a lot of fun. As it turns out, November is actually my month - trial by fire I guess.

So here is the block I've chosen for my partners this month
Red and Aqua bee test block

This is the stargazing block designed by Angela Pingel (cut to pieces) from the book Modern Blocks.

I've done my block up in a palette of Aqua and Red on a natural linen background! Hey it's the Aqua and Red bee after all.

So far I'm liking this palette a lot. You might notice a little holiday inspiration in there. I figured it was a good way to get myself and hopefully everyone else, in the holiday mood.

I can't wait to see what my partners come up with.

Happy Sewing!

These are adorable! I'm hoping to start a christmas quilt in January, you know after the X-mas prints go on sale:)
