Simply Solids - Building Blocks Tuesday

Yippee!  Another Bee started in February - the Simply Solids Bee.  Yes, I know I got a little crazy signing up for stuff at the beginning of the year.  But, I love solids, and so far this bee has been a breeze.  I've even have 2 blocks to show you today!

For February, Sew Chick requested these fun Star Gazing Blocks from the book, Modern Blocks compiled by Susanne Woods.  This book is chock full of good blocks for bees, and I had a lot of fun making this one.

Simply Solids - February

Sew Chick sent me all the fabric I needed to make this beauty and it came together pretty quickly.

Surprisingly, the March Block was posted and Nicole got her fabrics out early, so I was able to finish her blocks up too.  What? Ahead of the game?  Yep!

This one is called Puzzle Box by Brigette at Zen Chic and the instructions are available at the Moda Bake Shop here.  Nicole asked us to make 4 blocks, but sent us all the fabric we needed, and the block was pretty darn simple.

I've also been working on catching up on my Star of Africa Blocks, but I would rather wait and show you all of them at once.  Maybe next week?

So what have you been working on this week?

Link up your fabulous blocks.  You put a lot of hard work into them - show them off!  This free linky will stay open for a whole week.  And spread the word!

1) Please link up only to the page in your blog showing your wonderful blocks, not just the blog homepage.  Flickr pictures are also OK.
2) Make sure to put your blog name as the description so people know where they are going or the name of your block!
3) Please grab my button and post it in your blog post or sidebar.
4) Visit other linky participants!

Thanks for reading,

  1. Love that star block - it's so cute with that teeny little star in the corner!


I LOVE comments, they make my day! Most of the time I am too distracted to respond right away, but I DO read them...always.

When I respond, I usually do it via email. Sometimes Google makes this easy and sometimes it doesn't. I usually only reply when it is easy. Just sayin.

Obviously, I can't reply to you at all if you are a no reply blogger. Also, sorry to Anonymous commentors, too much spam lately. You will have to leave a comment another way.

Have a Super Sparkly Day!
