Description

I've joined a second hive at Newbee Quilters and I'm the first Queen of Hive #6! I'm excited to see the blocks everyone makes with this pattern!

I've chosen the Star Crossed block by Don't Call Me Betsy.

Fabric requirements I would like to see :

Background fabric: Low Volume
Star and Cross/Plus fabrics: Bright, bold and contrasting!

I've made two quick blocks so far for examples

Great blocks. This will be a fun quilt when you get all of your blocks

Thanks Skynme and HawkFan ! I've been oogling everyone's scrappy colourful quilts in the different bees, so I wanted one of my own!!

Sewhappy

Love the star and the scrappy aspect - I'm looking forward to making it for you :-)

I REALLY like these blocks!! Great color contrast and the low volume background just gives it that special touch. I am definitely making this one!

VictoriaJ They do!! I'm still waiting for a couple more blocks, and then I'll take a better quality picture. It looks so much better in person!!

Skynme

Oh, I love this block...this is going to be a gorgeous quilt!

Joke

Skynme I plan on making 3 more blocks, with "warm" stars and "cool" pluses to fit in with the alternating blocks. Then I need to think of sashing... I'm thinking of putting pluses amongst the sashing too. I'm so happy to finally have all my blocks so I can start planning grin

Robynn

Your blocks look so good together.

Terryt1955

Joke
