3x6 Quilting Bee

I joined in this first round of 2011 for the 3x6 Bee on Flickr. The rules of this Bee are different than other bees in that:

~ Each Beehive consists of 7 participants, 6 of whom you will make a block for.

~ Block size will be 12.5 " unfinished.

~ Make 6 blocks OF THE SAME BLOCK PATTERN using the color choices of each participant. (for example, 6 Sawtooth Stars in different colors and fabrics)

~ the only control you have over the block being made for you is the color choices you have made.

~ Use fabric from your own stash and if you need certain fabric colors, please make a request in the scrap swap thread.

This Bee lasts for 3 months. I made Log Cabin blocks for my Beehive since these are one of my favorite blocks.
