May Block for Bee Blessed

It has been so lovely seeing your Starflower blocks coming in these past few weeks.


Not having the requirement of a white background has been a refreshing change, so we thought we'd have another 'no white background' month!


These 16 Patch blocks were made by the uber talented (& fellow Brit Bee-er) Fiona of Poppy Makes.  I love the simplicity of these blocks.  And being a big fan of scrappy quilts, I think these blocks will make up into wonderfully colourful quilts.
 
Fiona has written a superb tutorial for these 12.5" unfinished blocks, which you can find here. Please keep to 2 prints for each block, as shown.
 
So that's another month sorted out!  I can't quite believe we are almost into May!
