May Bee for Me

It's my month at the {Sew} Beautiful Bee and I finally made a block decision.  I'm going to let my bee mates decide!  Mean, I know....hopefully they all have fun doing it, and don't hate me or feel too stressed about that.
   

Long ago I favorited one of AmandaJean's bee quilts, a wonderful one all in reds.  I liked both the monochromatic color plan as well as having a real piece of each bee member with their own block creation.  


So I sent out packets of blue solids and prints to my bee buddies today, asking them to make a block they love - that is Them.  I can't wait to see what comes back!

I'm thinking of doing the same thing for my bee month, next month. I too have no clue on a block, but wanted blues. Maybe something with waves, or some sort of motion.

I love that idea. I have a bee I am in and my month is in September. I have been thinking of what to do. I think I will try this idea out. I can't wait to see you finished quilt.

Ooh, I started planning out my blue block and then I remembered I'm not in your bee :) That's going to be a really beautiful quilt I'll bet. Your fabrics are perfect.
