Above is my test block for the [3 x 6] Sampler Quilt Mini Bee 2nd Qtr 2011 – Beehive 23! Unfortunately I can’t take any credit; that belongs to Mr. Parfait. My original design did not work out, and I wallowed in self pity for a few days before giving in and accepting that it just wasn’t going to work. After days of trying to think of something else (I had a mental block due to my original design, heh) my Husband came up with this design. A few days later we got busy working on a test block using my color palette. It is cut and pieced as patchwork, then set on point. I really love the finished block, the interlocking squares/shapes look really neat! I can’t wait to see it made in the other color choices; I think orange and aqua on gray is going to look great!
