Blue bee blocks

For Do Good Stitches - the Love Circle's Box of Crayons quilt.


For the block on the right, I used Badskirt Amy's tutorial for the x and + block, but I increased the block size to 12.5".

    Love these Lee! Great color!

    You know that I'm going to have to ask you for the "quilt math" on the parts, right? I signed up to do the QAL made with a block size of 8" but haven't started yet and 12.5" sounds so much more reasonable!

    OH, your colors are perfect!

    Karen LOL, I figured somebody would ask that. : )

    Fabric A (the solid blue cross in the middle): 2 - 2.5" squares, 1 - 2.5" x 6.5" strip

    Fabric B (blue with white dots): 4 - 2.5" x 3.5"

    Fabric C: (Amy Butler blue/turquoise floral): - 3.5" squares

    Four other prints: 5.5" squares

    freshlypieced Thanks - you're the best! This makes it jelly roll friendly which is an unexpected bonus.

    Thanks Lee - I think you just solved my dilemma of which block to choose for my upcoming bee month! The upsizing is perfect.

    Thanks so much for sharing your math with us! You just saved me a TON of frustration and the need to drink lots of wine!
