Gridster Bee: January and February Blocks

I know I've mentioned it a couple of times before, but I'm finally writing an actual post about the new bee I'm in for 2017.  It is the Gridster Bee - because we are "Hip, adventurous quilters who love the grid"  We are also encouraged to try something new.  In January Susan asked for New York Beauty blocks in pink, black, white, yellow, red and blue.
Having never made a New York Beauty block before that is when I conceived my idea of practice blocks leading to a sampler for myself at the end of the year.

This was my very large fabric pull for the blocks.
And my two finishes!

In February Sherri asked for a Pineapple block.
Fun and easy!  One for her and one for me!

My month is May (my birthday month!)  I'm thinking of asking for bees.  I made this one above as a test.  I haven't decided for sure.
