Gridster Bee: February, March & April

Fortunately, I've been keeping up with making my Gridster Bee blocks much better than posting about them.
In February, Sherri of A Quilting Life requested scrappy pineapple blocks, which aren't the traditional kind that may come to mind. Coincidentally, you can find Sherri demonstrating the more common variation for Fat Quarter Shop's Bella Skill Builder on YouTube. If you're looking for a more realistic interpretation, use these Pineapple Block instructions. You can also check out Sherri's Mini that inspired her block request. Below is my creation. Sherri has already pieced her quilt top; she shows the progression on her blog here, here, and here.
Elizabeth of Occasional/Piece--Quilt! requested a pair of pigs in March, which she was kind enough to photograph for me since I packaged them without remembering. Elizabeth provided detailed instructions on her blog. Like Sherri, she's composed a top already
This month, Nancy of Patchwork Breeze designed a star block using EQ7.
I'm curious what next month will bring, but I wager I can find a few UFOs to keep me busy until then.

  3. Good job keeping up! Your blocks are all fun!

  4. How great that your bee mates already have pieced tops!

  5. Fun to see all these blocks again, so thanks for the round-up. I need to make the binding for Piggies! then it will be all done. Yay! But like you, I have multiple UFOs that I can turn to if I need something to do.
    I've actually been imitating you on a smaller scale: I've been cleaning out and revamping my sewing room. I realized that I could put all the books downstairs in the bookcase and that would leave more room for fabric to be put away (off the floor), so I've been doing that all week...a bit at a time.
