In early 2012, I was invited to join the Pastiche Bee, a paper piecing bee inspired by Ringo Pie and Cocorico. It’s been a really good and really challenging experience. I don’t feel like my skills are quite what I would like them to be, but I’m also excited to have the chance to push them and the women in the bee are supportive and generous in their feedback.
March was my month and I choose a vintage school / office theme. I made a pinterest inspiration board for the group and then they went to town. You can see the blocks I received at the top of this post. I’m hoping to make some additional scrappy blocks to flush out a lap quilt to keep on the couch in my office at school. Right now I’m thinking this might be a fun time to try out some + & x blocks in favorite fabrics, but I also might decide to make improv blocks. It’s all theoretical at this point.
Here are the blocks I’ve made so far for the bee.
Keats Block for Marilyn
Alice block for Leah
Landscape block for Lucinda
Rex Ray Inspired for Krista
