Confetti For A Spring Wedding? - No It's My April Bee Block

My NYC Metro Mod Guild April Queen Bee is my good friend Maren @The Agitprop Quilter.

Take a look at the fabric package that arrived in the mail.

 Maren asked us to make a Confetti Block using a pattern from the book Block Party: The Modern Quilting Bee "Megan's Quilt - Party of Twelve"

And here's the finished block.

 This was such a fun and easy block to put together.  Just put white borders around the sections of colour and then add more white strips to join them together in a 13.5" block.

This is going to be a really fun, crisp quilt when it's finished.

Maren has finished her quilt top - love how this turned out, and I've spotted my block - it's centre-left.

You can take a look at all the blocks that our Bee have made for Maren on my Quilty - Confetti Block Pinterest Board - I'll add more pins as each person in the Bee posts photos of their finished blocks and you can see my NYC Mod Guild Post here too.
