CQ Jersey bee - March 2015

My friend Jane has just started a bee for our local guild. For the first month, Jane is bee mama and has chosen the weather vane block with these instructions from McCalls.

Jane asked us to make a block that looks like a flower. So green leaves, coloured petals a different centre and a light back ground - any light colour will do, white, cream, ... anything plain and pale.

I soon regretted my choice of printed cream fabric as at night it's difficult to differentiate the right side from the wrong side.

In the full light of day, as I finished the blocks this morning, it looks like all of the background fabrics are the right way around. Jane is using these blocks to make a quilt for Siblings Together.
