Miss March

March snuck up on me. Ever since Flickr and I stopped talking I sort of lost track of where I sat within the fabulous Stitch Tease Bee. I happily made my blocks for others, oft times rather late but there has been a wonderful variety of blocks asked for so far this year. And then suddenly it was my turn. 

I had been planning on designing a block. Time caught me out. So I went with another idea I had totally inspired by Beth at Plum and June. She makes such lovely things, and this quilt has been one of my favourites. 

I love the wonkiness, the colous,the fussy cuts - this quilt is totally up my street. So I asked my bee mates to make me wonky log cabins with a fussy cut in the middle. The only rule was if the fussy cut had a coloured background then it needed to be framed in white first. If it had a white background then it needed a colourful frame. The blocks could be any size based on a factor of 6" finished. So 6.5"x6.5" or 12.5"x12.5" or 6.5"x12.5" or 18.5"x12.5", etc. this will allow me to fit the various blocks together fairly easily, filling in spaces when and however required. 

I have already received blocks, but first I will show you the ones I made myself. The other blocks I can show off on a different day. 

These are one 12.5"x6.5" and two 6.5" square. I think that may be my last girl on a swing from Sherbet Pips, the first fabric line I ever fell in love with. Needless to say using some of my Heather Ross was a necessity as well. 

Then I used one of my Wee Wander horses for a 12.5" block. It's a start for a quilt that I'm really rather excited about. 



  1. It will be fab. I've seen some of the blocks being sent to you by the. Other bees and they are great!

  2. This will undoubtedly be another wonderful quilt. You have great ideas!

  3. it'll be another beauty no doubt!

  4. It's going to be a gorgeous quilt but I have to say wonky kind of makes me twitchy.

  5. These are gorgeous! Feeling a bit inspired to try something like this myself with some tiny charms I won la

  6. What a cool idea for a bee quilt. You're on a super path, miss March!
