Camp Quilting - Brit Bee Style...

Well I sewed like a trouper, without the swearing, and got Terri's Brit Bee blocks made last night.

Our orders were 8-or-more-pointed stars, so I had to make her a mini 'constellation' block didn't I! 

Terri provided some pale pink and yellow fabrics, to go against the green background, and I supplemented hers with some of my own to avoid too much repetition; I swapped the layout a little and I love how this has turned out...


The second block was to be red.  Now I don't do red very often, and really didn't have enough of the right tone to match Terri's chosen fabrics.  So with a quick flick through my Fat Quarterly 'Shape Workshop for Quilters - Star chapter', I was away using just Terri's Wizard of Oz themed prints... Star Within A Star...


Isn't this the campest block ever!?

So there you go, I can't believe a whole year of Brit Bee blocks are now done and dusted...


13 quilts, which are now quite frankly the cherries on top of our friendship, including the extra special Project 51; and all set to go again after we get to meet for the first time at FQ Retreat... Perfect x

  18. Love the blocks especially the Dorothy one. But that's probably because I want some of that ruby slippers fabric!
