So I have been making blocks like this over the weekend.
The Bee requirements are not that onerous, which was one of my reasons for signing up :) There are 6 Bees in each Hive, and we will be sending out one Scrappy Trip Around the World block to each Bee member every quarter. That doesn't sound so bad now does it.
The blocks are made using the tutorial from Quiltville and they are really quick to put together, so once I had made one in next to no time I had made all 5.
Bright modern fabrics for this one
Low volume for these two
Aqua's and green's for this one.
I would have said that I had very little in the way of low-volume fabric in my stash, so I was surprised to find that I could come up with two low-volume blocks with ease.
The blocks were so straightforward to put together, that I kept going after I had finished the Bee blocks. Having rejected several ideas for a quilt for my son and his new fiancee that is one of my Q2 finishes (hopefully!) I decided that a Scrappy Trip Around the World quilt would fit the bill perfectly.
So, now have this large pile of strips to get to grips with. It is progress but that is about all I can say for it at the moment :)
It has been a while since I looked at my WIP list, so here is how it is looking now
