When it was my turn to be queen bee for Sew-Euro-Bee-An a long time ago I asked for blocks in blues and turquoise. Anything went. Improv, pieced, appliqué, traditional, modern, solids, prints, batiks…. I got some wonderful blocks back. Sadly one member of the bee had to opt out due to too many commitments and one other member just disappeared so I have less blocks than I technically should. However, I really love all the ones I got and have decided to sash them all with grey to give them some cohesion. As the blocks are different sizes this is a great way to sew them all together without too much trouble.

Sew-Euro-Bee-An blocks

I’ve only sewn one row together so far but will have to wait with the other rows until Kindergarten starts again as I need to lay them all out on the floor again. I’m also wondering if I should make another two blocks to fill those two rows that only have three blocks in them?

This quilt will end up being a nice lap size, I think, and I’m really looking forward to snuggling under it this winter.
