Quilting Bee Spotlight: Neutral and Not II

It feels like time for a bee block post!  In 2012, we wrapped up Neutral and Not, a 12-month bee that I created after being inspired by the red and white quilt show in NYC a few years ago. I profiled our first six assignments earlier, and here are the rest:

June 2012:

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.

July 2012:

Textured linens and navies came our way from Kate in July, with permission to go wild with wonky log cabins.

August 2012:

August brought us some delicious Denyse Schmidt prints to use in Granny Squares for Cindy.

September 2012:

In September, Nydia sent us the softest palette to make into random half-square triangle blocks.  Her finished quilt is so serene.

October 2012:

We received some bright prints from Christine in October to make the ever-enchanting wonky 9-patch (which is quick to boot!).

November 2012:

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
