Scrappy Bee 5 Piece

5 five piece blocks will be in the mail to LeeAnn tomorrow. I can't show a photo as my camera is currently in China with darling daughter #2 as her camera was stolen two weeks ago at an exhibit her class was attending.

This was an interesting exercise for me. I still consider myself a newbie in quiltland and in my wanderings I tend to choose tradition blocks to do in nontraditional fabrications. I question whether my layouts in this fabric creation mode will be pleasing to someone else. One of the important things I've learned creating the January and February blocks is that my stash tends to be monochromatic in two or three colorways and a lot of my scraps are boring: what was I thinking when I bought that stuff?
