Strips and HST's this Month

This month the bee blocks were on the easy side, which I have to say was so nice for the start of the year ;) For the Beejeeber's group, Colby asked us to make blocks using simple strips.  These went together so quick and easy. And look at the inspiration for making this quilt, it is going to be awesome ;)


For the Bees Knees, Carrie (yes as in Carrie of Miss Rosie's Quilt Shop, can we say a bit intimidating) asked us to make some Half Square Triangle Blocks.  She is making a sampler quilt from Camille's 25 HST Blocks Video, and she even sent some Flee Market Fancy for us to make them with ;)


These blocks were so much fun to put together.  I love making HST's!!!  Especially now that I can trim them super fast and easy with my Bloc-Loc Ruler   (seriously, I don't think I could possibly love a ruler more ;)


There is nothing quilt like a whole tone of perfect points in one block.  So pretty!!!


And now I am super excited because it is Jan 10 and I am finished my Bee Blocks!!  Yippee Skippee for Finishes early in the month :)  And Jan 10 is also a super exciting day around here because my oldest turned 11, my goodness he is practically a little man!!!  I'm off to bake a cake ;)

Have a Happy Quilting Day!!!

Linking these finishes to Sarah's and Amanda's :)

  2. I love the loc blocs as well-right now I am missing the 2 incher-probably in the depths of the couch as I trim while watching TV. Love your perfect points:)

  7. Just wondering- how do you get your points so perfect? Sometimes mine look a bit off, makes such a difference. Is there a secret?
