My first post in my first blog will be about the first block I did for the first quilting bee I’m in (Fat Stash Bee). There is a beginning to everything, right! In our bee, the person who is leading the month only provides the 11 other member a fat quarter. We have to integrate this in our block and complete with fabrics from our stash. For this month, we had to do a house block for princessmax’s neighborhood quilt. She provided us a orange FQ which I used for the brick in my house. She also gave us a couple of links for inspiration, one of them was a tutorial from comfortstiching. I based my block design on this and I adapted it to do a little candy shop. This idea came from fabrics I had: a candy print and a fabric with stripes in the same colors. The first was leftovers from Christmas which I bought with my sister to do some Furoshikis (Japenese gift wrap). The second one comes from a jelly roll of quilting fabric remnants I bought thinking my little stash would be insufficient. I thought these would be perfect for this project. Here are the fabrics:
And here is the final result. It was really fun to do this and I hope princessmax likes it!
