I went to the post office yesterday, and it felt SO good to get bee blocks in the mail!
Those packages include a set of do. Good Stitches blocks, my Stash Bee hive 8 blocks, one baby quilt headed for a friend in Montana, and a fat quarter of Architectures that someone on Instagram needed to finish a project. Getting to the post office is a big chore for me, but I love that feeling I get when I put quilty things in the mail. I love imagining the excitement someone hopefully feels when they open up a box and get a surprise quilt from me!
You can find the original tutorial for the Bento Box Block from Ashley at Film in the Fridge along with a great example of what can be created with the bento box design (you quarter this block and mix it in with several other quartered blocks). The specs for this specific block can be found on the Stash Bee blog. My outer edge, the Lotta Jansdotter fabric, has not been trimmed per the queen’s request, but the block will measure 16.5″ when she does that.
