two very different bee blocks

After finishing up a sewing commitment yesterday (I'll share it down the road at some point!), I decided to get caught up on bee blocks during Cooper's nap this morning.

First, these liberated X and O blocks for Bee Liberated:

As most of you probably know, these are my kinds of blocks! No measuring, just some sewing and cutting, and everything eventually comes together. The next ones were a different story though. A member of my Not Your Grandma's Quilting Bee requested these star blocks. I don't do patterns well, as precision sewing isn't one of my best skills. But she had precut the fabrics and they came together easily! So easily that I'm saving the instructions in case I might want to try these with more modern fabrics.

Ah, feels good to cross things off the list!

I'm with you...anything that requires precision isn't my cup of tea. I like room for fudge factor.

They are all beautiful.

I love those two x and o blocks, too! I think I should try some of the quilting that doesn't need so much precision...I prefer not to be fussy with too many details and such.
