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.
Tiny gives new meaning the term "Block Head"

Here's Mowg's block
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!

They look great and don't worry about being little late. We all have that happen sometimes.
