Bee blocks over the weekend

Pin It First --

Some wonky stars for Karrie and our "Putting the Bee in Christmas" group.

These were my first wonky stars... and they went quite well. :)

wonky stars for Karrie

Since I made my bee members work so hard last month, I decided to make her next one extra special.

I also got a couple of my Dresdens done for the Quilting Divas group.  

Jessica wanted aqua, purple, and green

Dresden for Jessica

and Kelly wanted pink, green, and grey on Kona Coal

Dresden for Kelly

I used the 22.5 degree ruler for these, instead of the 18 degree (16 blades vs. 20), and I like this chubbier version so much better.  I really don't want to send these away.... maybe I'll make a scrappy Dresden quilt one day.

I am loving all your start, your wonky stars in stars- set off beautifully and your chubby dresdens- plumper is better I agree!

Love the chubby dresdens, almost as much as the polka dots! No, I might actually love all those polka dots more...

I like chubbier Dresden Plates, too. They are very nice, as are your wonky stars, particularly the star in a star.
