I have been in the Bees Knees Sewing Bee for
two years now. A few of the members changed
this year... but it has still been a fun group
to see with!
This was my project from last year.
I had a project in mind for these... and last week Thelma reminded me of it
when I read her blog. So I got them out and am making a commitment
to getting them completed!
Starry Eyed was my Bee project for this year...
and I got all the blocks back already!
I had requested the group to make the star blocks and
I would make the alternate blocks.
Since I didn't really have the yardages the
pattern called for to begin with...
I used every bit of my scraps to pull
this one together!
You can see that I made nine-patches for the centers of
the alternate blocks in some... but I had a few larger scraps and I
went ahead and used them for the center of some of the blocks also.
(the pattern called for 4-patches for the centers)
I am working on sewing the rows together now!
I certainly would have liked to have used the fabric
in the original pattern... I like the black in it.
But this fabric is cute... it just doesn't have that contrast that the black
gives. What do you think?
