Bzzzz: Bee Blocks

These will be buzzing off in the mail today.

First, the [3x6] Sampler Quilt Mini Bee. This is such a fun block exchange. You pick one block style to make, and then make the same block in  the color combination requested by each person in the block swap.

 Tiffany (yellow, green and blue):

Nancy (rainbow--something for the kitchen table):

Kelly (blue, gray and yellow--something for a throw):
 Karie (blue, gray, green--for a quilt in her boys' play area):
Jane (green, orange and pink):
Donna (she wanted to be surprised, but added that she likes jewel tones):
And this is for Vicki in Block Swap 2 (these string blocks are really a great way to use lots of scraps!)

Love your 3x6 blocks. It is so fun to see the same block worked up in different ways. Very fun!
