2017 Beehive wrap up and January One Monthly Goal

Now that we have ticked over into 2018, I thought I'd share the collection of blocks that I made for my Beehive Quilts quilting bee last year. One of the reasons that I enjoy being part of a bee is the chance to experiment with different block designs and colour palettes that you wouldn't ordinarily choose yourself.

My favourites are the two Wanta Fanta blocks chosen by Eleri and Sue. Although it's not my favourite block to make, I love how they challenged me to chose prints outside my comfort zone (I usually avoid mutlicolour prints).

I can't wait to make a quilt with the beautiful blocks that I received during my reign as queen. I've already got 16 so don't need to make too many more. I'm linking up with Elm Street Quilts January One Monthly Goal and setting finishing the quilt top as my January goal.

I'm looking forward to doing it all again in 2018 and am excited to see what blocks and colours will be chosen by the members of my new Beehive group.



  1. Love those blocks! Thanks for linking up with Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal and good luck with your project.

  2. Those are such pretty blocks. Looks like a Spring day.

  3. Your bee quilt looks amazing! Have fun with the remaining blocks and good luck with the OMG.
