3×6 Sampler Hive Test Block

I don’t know what drove me to do it…but I signed up for the 3×6 bee again. On top of that I signed up for 2 different hives! LOL  I guess I just felt like I didn’t have enough going on.

When I do these bees I like to do a nice mix of my own original designs for blocks and then classic designs. For the Sampler Hive that I am in, I opted to design my own block. Here is the mock up:

And here is my test block.

I’m pretty happy with it, I like how it gives me the opportunity to show case 5 different prints and frames them beautifully.  I’m think of doing this up as a tutorial…would anyone be interested?  There will be 6 more of these made in the future.

    I love the block. I’m very into solids right now, mixed with focus fabrics. I’m still a newbie – what is a 3×6 bee and what is a hive block?
