I am super excited for my month as Queen Bee. I got a late start in the Stash Bee (joined in May when another member dropped out). So I've enjoyed sewing the blocks for you all but I couldn't wait for my turn.
A little bit about me...
I'm a 20 something married Speech-Language Pathologist in South Florida who just became a mom this year.
I have to show him off for just one sec, ok?
My chocolate chip cookie (yes, I made my costume lol)
I've been quilting for about 10 years. I blog at The Sew Called Wife. Most recently I've been doing a lot of improvisational and modern quilting. But this month I decided to pick a more traditional and holiday inspired block.
The tutorial is from Craftsy and can be found here.
As for fabric choices, I originally did a fabric pull and chose bright yellowish/orangish fabrics.
But then I remembered that I had a Moda layer cake from a few years ago that was Thanksgiving themed. So that's what I went with. Feel free to go either way- traditional or modern. I love both!
This block was super easy to put together. Just a little bit of cutting.
Then super quick piecing. I put it together in 15 minutes while my husband took the baby for a walk.
Quick note on ironing- I suggest following the pattern's directions on pressing the seams because they get a bit bulky.
The finished block is size is 8" but feel free to not square it up. I can do that.
I hope my enjoy this month's block. Thanks for sticking with Stash Bee til the end for me :)
And for the question....
What's your favorite holiday memory?
