Primary Bee Blocks
This month is Lisa's daughters turn and she choose the Bento Block with pink, purple and yellow as her colors. I tried the tutorial I mentioned in my last post from Red Pepper Quilts and determined that the strip piecing method I used last month was much more effective for our sewing time. It allowed me to section the sewing time so the kids didn't get too overwhelmed. I did have a few adjustments to her instructions. She tells you to cut one 2 1/2" x 6 1/2" strip before you sew the two colors together. You actually need two. Other than that it was pretty straight forward and I was able to stay organized this time and I think they did a pretty good job.

You can't see it in this picture, but the yellow has sparkly dots--not fairy frost sparkly, more subtle.
We were a little late for April--but they went in the mail today.
Hope you like them!
