Bee Blocks for Alex

I had a nice quiet Sunday afternoon to myself to sew.  I just recevied round robin bee blocks from Alex of Canberra, Australia and decided to work on that project because I love the block she chose.  It is a simple paper pieced kaleidoscope block.  It is easy to sew but spectacular when grouped together.  It forms a secondary pattern that looks circular, much like Storm at Sea.  I was having such a good time, I made two of them for her…just couldn’t help myself.  Here’s the first:

and here is the second:
and here are the bee blocks that have been made for her so far:
These blocks still have quite a journey ahead of them and by the time they make their way back to Alex she should have lots of beautiful blocks for her quilt!

  1. I love the design. I’m pretty new with quilting. Where can I get the pattern for the block? I agree with Chris…those points are perfect!!
