Wayyy back in June, Tiffany sent out black, white, and splashes of color, requesting that we make anything we wanted using half-square triangles. Just the kind of "guided freedom" that makes bees so much fun! I made a modified version of the star block in this tutorial.
Textured linens and navies came our way from Kate in July, with permission to go wild with wonky log cabins.
August brought us some delicious Denyse Schmidt prints to use in Granny Squares for Cindy.
In September, Nydia sent us the softest palette to make into random half-square triangle blocks. Her finished quilt is so serene.
We received some bright prints from Christine in October to make the ever-enchanting wonky 9-patch (which is quick to boot!).
Finally, I closed out our year in November with a somewhat vague assignment to place a "texture" on a field of neutrals. My block, above, absolutely pales in comparison to the ones I received. I am so grateful to the members of this bee for providing creative challenges, inspiration, and quilty friendship. To see their astounding work, check out our group's photo pool.
