I’m late, I’m late, for an obviously very important date! You’ll have to forgive me as I get back onto my regularly blogging schedule. Normally, I would have The Honey Pot Bee post up on the first of the month, but as you know I’ve been gallivanting around the U.S. Now, if you’d like to send me hate mail, please do so. It will be returned to sender, but do what ya like! I hope you have spent the past week catching up on some other neglected quilt projects, or going back and filling in some of the blocks you’ve missed throughout the year. If you’re like me, you have one or two you still need to make happen. Shimmy shimmy coco pops!
When Molli asked what month I wanted to be Queen Bee, I chose October because I LOVE Halloween. Love it. Almost everything I have made for myself is Halloween themed. I realize that not everyone has the same obsession with this particular holiday, which actually made choosing a block a bit tricky. Maybe you don’t want a vampire or ghost stuck in the middle of your Honey Pot Bee quilt! Oh, what to do. The solution is theBarn Bat Block! This tutorial by Elizabeth Hartman is based on an older block (you can read about it在她的教程中). I know, I know, how does a bat block solve the problem? If you make the block in non-halloween fabrics, it looks more like an interesting design rather than Halloween-styled bats. You could also cut it in half right down the middle and have two skinny blocks to fill in odd spaces in your quilt. I do hope you try it! The block has a very interesting construction process that I thoroughly enjoyed. It is rather large, but by leaving off a few rows or columns, you can make it nearly any size you like!
