January Bee Blocks X 2

I've said it before and I'll say it again, this quilting bee has been such a great learning experience for me. Sure, there may have been a few curse words here and there, but when the blocks are finished, I really feel like I've been challenged in ways I would never have challenged myself. This month's blocks in particular have me feeling like I was exposed to a whole other level of quilting. Not that the blocks were hard, just that the method Jen asked us to use was like a brilliant puzzle. Maybe following patterns isn't the worst idea in the world afterall! Pattern is an uneven star (for the big blocks) and the fabric is Dream On by Urban Chicks for Moda. I doubled up this month to cover off Donna's blocks since she moved into THE most beautiful new home just over a week ago. Donna, you can pick which one you made!

I especially love the wonky stars!I really want to try making some wonky block squares (add that to the mile long project dream list). I think that Donna's square is my absolute favourite! ;)
