Stash Bee 2017 - April Block - No Rules

April Queen Rhonda asked for a simple block design of framed squares. No rules. No color limitations. No strip dimensions. The centre square even did not have to be a pretty fussy cut as her plans entailed, to cut the finished blocks apart diagonally. The thus halved squares are to be randomly combined to create new blocks.

My block was made from scraps and left over fabric strips and came together really fast. The only stipulation was that there should be some contrast between the fabrics that had been used.

Puppilalla, Bee block, Stash Bee, Scrappy string block, quilting, patchwork

I like how my block worked out. The greens and oranges play very well together and give off a nice warm feeling.


  1. No rules can be very freeing and scary at the same time. I think you pulled off the perfect block for Rhonda. I really really like that center square :)

  2. Your block looks fabulous! What a great idea to cut and combine the finished blocks!

  3. It's a great block, and it certainly looks framed. Shame it will be cut up, but as Forrest's Mama said 'life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're going to get'. sounds like an adventure to me.
