Modern Insta Bee - February (catch-up post)

Where has time gone??? It's already June and I haven't yet blogged about the blocks I made for February, March and April in the UK Modern Insta Bee.  Let's see if I can get a few post made today...

Here's February!

Julie picked the Triple Star by Elena Roscoe of Hot Pink Stitches. To match with Julie's home, she asked us to use black for the background and hot pinks, not too girlie, but more lace and leather.

To be on the safe side, I picked out a few pinks from my stash and asked Julie which ones she'd like.

Then the cutting commenced....

Layouts were tested...

Here's the middle star; there are some seriously small squares... Centre fabrics is by Karen Lewis Textiles. If you haven't seen her screen printed fabrics before, go and have a look at her home page. They are absolutely gorgeous!!!

Quite a few seams later, here's the final block! It is a really vibrant block, with very strong pinks against the solid Kona Jet Black. Unfortunately, the camera didn't cope very well with all the black.

Here from another angle,  which seems to show the colours a bit better.

Hopefully, we'll see the finished quilt in Julie's Instagram feed soon...
