Bee Blocks

Whenever I make blocks for one of my virtual bees, I am hoping that the receiver gets a big bright smile on her face when she opens up the package! Here are a couple of blocks that I just finished for my quilting friends........
Beth belongs to the Nittany Block Party and is making a lovely quilt of half-square triangles. She mailed squares of white Kona and enough prints to make one block. She asked us to make a second block using fabrics from our stash.  This quilt will be a bucket load of eye-candy. She plans to set them side by side.  I can't wait to see the finished product!
Twelve gals from my Kansas City Modern Quilt Guild are participating in a block exchange each month.  Paula gave each of us a fat quarter of the cute blue bird fabric and asked for a wonky star as her September block.  I had fun digging into my orange fabrics to create this twelve inch block.  You may recall that I bought some of this exact bird fabric a while back to make a dress for Lula, my grand daughter.  Didn't happen!  Oh, well, there's always next spring. Maybe Jane will want one too!
