When my January Bee Block package for my NYC Metro MOD Quilt Guild Bee arrived from King Bee Brian I was delighted to see the tutorial he wanted us to use was by a long time bloggy friend of mine, Kelly @My Quilt Infatuation.
So no tutorial from me this month, instead if you want to recreate the block head straight over to Kelly's blog and follow her Purse Strings Block tute.
Fabrics and notes from King Bee Brian.
I added two of my own fabrics - instructions said to stick with red and white.
I sewed a second seam a 1/2" from the first HST seam to create the 'bonus' HSTs above that Brian wants to include in the quilt.
An easy block with great impact.
Update May 2016
King Bee Brian brought his finished quilt to our May 2016 NYC Metro MOD Quilt Guild meeting. It's absolutely stunning. Can you spot my block? It's the one right in the centre.
