Gridster Bee 2019 Jan - May

The Gridster Bee has continued into its third year here in 2019.  A few change ups in the players, but I'm still partcipating.  
A run-down of the bee blocks so far.

In January Carol (carolanngillen on IG) asked for Christmas Trees from a pattern by @centerstreetquilts  I was happy to oblige with 3 blocks.  They were pretty small and quick. 6" squares to be exact.

In February, our ringleader Elizabeth, asked for houses from a pattern of her own design, Merrion Square. She's got her houses already sewn up into a quilt top.   Check out her website for her quilt top and pattern

 In March Marsha asked for some twisty flying geese.  You can find her at Quilter in Motion.  The paper pieced patterns came from Piece and Press

I was actually early/on time for April - sending these off a week ago.  Patriotic Friendship stars for Nancy at Patchwork Breeze  You can see some of the other blocks she's received, along with her EQ mockup of the finished quilt. 

 And finally, I know its not for a few weeks, yet, but May is my month.  I think it is the best month to bee Queen Bee, since its also my birthday month, so its like getting presents in the mail all month long!
 I'm asking for these star blocks, pattern can be found *here* made up in Christmas colors.  One of my goals is to have a Christmas quilt for each bed in the house.  This will help me get another step closer.

That's a nice recap of all the months so far. I'm looking forward to your Christmas blocks.
