4×5 Bee Blocks

I decided that my 4×5 Bee Blocks would be a great project to tackle on the road at my Grandma’s house this past week.  I picked a block out of her old school, very well used, block book

I made my first patchwork out of this book with my grandma about 18 years ago, when I was about 7.  #110 Tic Tac Toe, also well used, as you can see

For the 4×5 I chose the Starry Path Block, which despite being in this book of “traditional” blocks, looked very cool and modern to me.

My Test Block

Blocks for Hive 8

I like them so much, I think I might do a variation of these for my next quarter of the 3×6 Bee too, though I’ve also really wanted to do some Lady of the Lake Blocks, so we’ll have to see.

UPDATE: There’s been a lot of interest in this block.  I used templates for a 12 block from the book above, but you can also get a pattern online for an 8″ Block from Quilter’s Cache here.
