Building Blocks Tuesday

I’ve been making another Bubbles Bee block this week – in red and black for Jan – I’m trying to get it finished as I’m a few blocks behind and the Bee finishes this month !

The Bubbles Bee is making blocks based on Aylin's Bubbles quilt.  Its a log cabin block that makes circles which is just so fabulous !  This round of the Bee started in June last year with members all over the world.

I’ve made a few other Bubbles blocks over the past few months - this one in yellow and black - the dark background really makes the bubble pop !

this one in all the blues - very calming !

and this one in pink with a white and text background - Lisa requested pinks with no or minimal white and I'm pretty amazed that I was able to find fabrics with no white - I've discovered that so many fabrics have a lot of white included, especially "modern" fabrics !

You can see the earlier blocks I made here and here – I'm so looking forward to seeing the finished quilts as they will all be so colourful !

While making the blocks is a little time consuming, I think the end result is worth it.  My best tip is to have the strips cut and sorted before you start sewing !!
