August Bee Block - Do What You Love

This is the last Bee block for the year. Lori wanted us to do what we loved. Our block could be any design as long as it was 12.5 x 12.5 inch block in the end. To ensure we worked with a color we liked, we each picked a solid from a rainbow of choices. She gave us all the same print fabric to use with our solid. There was a small piece of cooking themed fabric which she wanted use to include since she loves cooking.




I had no idea what block pattern to use since I am still trying different ones and don't have a favorite. At the Guild meeting, I started thumbing through the pile of freebie quilt magazines till I found a block I liked. It was an 8 3/4 inch block so I framed it with the cute novelty prints to get it to the correct size. I fussy cut the cooking utensils for the center of the block.
