August Charity Bee Block

Yikes!  This month has flown by while I have forgotten to post our August charity block.  I’m so sorry, but better late than not at all.  This month we’ll make a scrappy string block inspired by the talented Lynn Harris, who taught a workshop for us in July.  Bring your block to our September guild meeting or drop it at Guildcrafters.

Color Palette: Mudpunch Blogging: Green, purple, dark gray, light gray

Unfinished Block Size: 12.5″ x 12.5”

Block Instructions:

  1. Take out a 12.5″ square ruler, or eyeball it with your cutting mat.
  2. Stretch one string from corner to opposite corner being sure to overlap at the edges.

  3. Working from the center to the outside, sew strings that are shorter in length to either side. Be sure to starch liberally as you add each string.

  4. When you have reached the outer edge of your block, press and trim to 12.5″.
