Gridster Bee!

I have mentioned this bee before but didn't explain 

things in detail.

We are Gridsters because we are working from a 

grid, posted on Google docs.

I was Queen Bee for January and requested a 

NYBeauty block.

I used this block as my inspiration....

asking for a royal blue, pink, red palette,

with a little yellow and black/white prints thrown in 

for good measure!

These are the blocks I have received so far....

I'm still waiting for three blocks to arrive, and have 

more of my own to make, 

before I decide on how I am going to set them.

So in the meantime, I've made the pineapple block 

Sherri requested for February.

This year I am making myself an extra block of each 

month's request.

And will make myself a sampler quilt as a memory of 

my gridster experience.

Happy sewing!



  1. Your NYB blocks are wonderful! The little bits of B&W play nicely with the brights.

  2. I love the idea of making yourself an extra block for a memory quilt :)

  3. Queen Bee, you picked a fine block for January. Your NYB block is so lovely and definitely up your alley. I can't wait to see all of your blocks together.

  4. You have received a lovely variety of blocks so far. And the pineapples look like fun. Making your own sampler quilt will be very interesting, too, as the blocks will be quite varied.
    Have fun!

  5. Black and white additions to colorful combinations always make me happy. And these NYB blocks are wonderful!

  6. Love your NYB blocks. Such a good idea to make an exrta block for a sampler quilt.

  7. I love your idea of making a second block, so you can have a separate quote at the end. You always have great ideas. I like how your pineapple turned out and your New York Beauty blocks are so amazing. Fabulous!

  8. These New York Beauty blocks are beauties! It's a "someday" block for me, one that I probably won't ever get to. But I sure like the scrappy quality of these. They look like a lot of work! Pineapples are nice too. What a good group you're in.

  9. Those NYBeauty blocks are fantastic. I really like the idea of making an extra block for yourself.

  10. Those New York Beauties are wonderful! (And so are your pineapples)

  11. You have received some lovely blocks and even though they are made by different people they go together well, you will have fun trying out different layouts with them all.

  12. What a great idea to make an extra block of each for a sampler. Loving all the NY blocks, such a great colour choice!

  13. Ihat does look like a lot of fun and making a spare for yourself is a good idea.

  14. What a cool way of approaching a bee project. Looks like lots of fun - and everyone gets what they want. I agree that making an extra block will give you a wonderful memory of the exchange. I look forward to seeing how this progresses during the year.

  15. These bee blocks look like fun. I miss making bee blocks. :(
