Bee Splendid Month 1
This month, the Bee Splendid group is sewing up Jacob's Ladder blocks for Sarah. She sent us a bag full of bright, fun scraps. I added a couple of my own scraps in there, at her request. Hopefully, they don't stick out too much.
The blocks went together really quickly, and they would be great for stash-busting or charm squares.
Speaking of charm squares, Karrie, our beekeeper, was so enamored with this pattern that she decided to form a charm square quilt along, using this block as the basis. She even managed to secure a coupon code valid until the end of the month for Crafty Girls Workshop, which already has some pretty flippin' sweet prices. I tell myself I have plenty of charm scraps in my bin (it's practically overflowing), but the lure of a good deal might just be too much.
