Mosaic bee blocks

Finished up some more bee blocks that particularly appealed to me today.  
These are for Rick, for my Scrap Happy Bee.

One cool thing about that bee is that when it's your month, you post a pattern, but all the participants use their own scraps to complete the block.  So it has a wonderful sense of variation each month!
I thoroughly enjoyed these mosaic blocks.  And I was so pleasantly surprised at how quickly they went together!
(Anyone recognize the black batik?)
And since you're using your own scraps, it's fun to make extras.  Rick might get one more if I get a chance before the month is up.....
Both blocks together. 

My favorite thing about online bees?  It gives me a chance to do something new without the commitment of a whole quilt.  I can sit down for an hour and finish a task.  Awesome.

Have a lovely weekend, everyone!


  1. I feel the same way about virtual quilting bees!

  2. I cannot believe how many quilts you make! I love it. Do you quilt them all yourself? This is what keeps me from finishing all of my own.
