April was my month for the Scraptastic Bee. I sent out Kona charcoal and requested blocks made using my Stashbuster Block Tutorial. You can see some of these blocks above–the ones with the solid gray center. The girls supplied all of the colorful bits from their stash–they variety of fabrics in these blocks is amazing! May is my month in the International Stash Busting Bee & I requested blocks using my Stashbusting Block #2. You can see one of these blocks in the center of the layout above.
I will be using the blocks that I receive from these two bees to make one larger quilt. I designed the blocks planning on using them together and I really like the way they work. I prefer an on point layout but who knows if I’ll change my mind once I have more blocks to lay out.
If you are looking for a way to bust some of your stash fabrics, these blocks work perfectly. The squares are cut at 1.5″ and will finish out at 1″ within the block. Perfect for using up even those teeny little scraps.
