Our June bee block (due in August because there was no July meeting) is from Neva. She gave use Osnaburg linen for the background and purple fabric for the rectangles. The finished block could be 8 inches minimum for the shortest side and up to 16 inches for the longest side. The rectangles are true rectangles, not wonky. At least three rectangles per block, but not touching. My block is 8 x 15.
