Bee's Knees August for Leanne
I have never made either of these blocks before. The scrapbuster block (top) was a lot of fun and I enjoyed making it - although I really had to keep my eye on my quarter inch seam! I'm not sure that I could make a whole quilt of these blocks - cutting all those little squares could be a bit tiresome. I guess I'd have to cut a few at a time and make it a longer term project. Making the string block reminded me of many of the stitch and flip projects I made a few years ago.
I've already made a good start on my MidMod Bee block for August. Jess sent us one color and one white piece of fabric. You can read more about her idea here.
