Blocks for Maple Leaf Bee

The January block is for a little boy's quilt; hence the doggies. I loved this fabric!

The February block is so bright and cheerful. Making it reminded me that spring is coming!

Catching up on my virtual Quilting Bee blocks

Improv block
This is for Bee Addicted 2 . We were given the 2 colours and some black and white. I added more black and white. I am really looking forward to seeing the finished quilt because I really cannot picture how such disparate blocks from all the bee members are going to go together.

This is for Bee Addicted . I like the Deer Valley fabric but I struggled with the lack of value contrast so I ended up appliqueing the circle with the fabric wrong side up to make it stand out a bit more.

String Piecing
I had a lot of fun adding fabric from my stash for this block. There are many ways the blocks can be put together, so I left them unattached. This is also for Bee Addicted.

Wonky Star
The starling print in the middle of this block is absolutely darling. I really struggle with making the wonky blocks because my brain really does not do wonky very well. I added black and white prints for the points. This is for A Piece of Work B

Another wonky star
The interesting point about this block for the Quilting Sisters Bee is that the background is a linen/cotton blend. I really enjoyed working with the fabric. I think the linen adds some textural interest.
