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.
