Rainbow Starburst Blocks

IMG_2608 IMG_2601

I've been getting caught up on bee blocks. I'll finally admit that I completely over committed myself in Bees this year. I wasn't planning to take on any new ones, but I ended up joining two because I was asked specially to join and I really wanted to sew with the amazing women in each bee. So I find myself so far behind it's embarrassing. But I found myself with some hours to spare so I focused on trying to get caught up. I'm not there yet, but I'm getting close.



I started with blocks for the Bee a Lone Star(burst) Bee since I'm furthest behind there and those blocks take such a long time to make. Two ladies in the bee asked for rainbow blocks so I decided to make those sets together. Then I ran out of the paper templates I printed, and our new printer at home isn't connect yet so it stymied any further progress. Christine asked for some scrappy rainbow blocks way back in July and Karen wanted the same for her September blocks, so I skipped ahead a little.



As soon as I get the printer hooked up (I am telling my husband this needs to happen tonight, please) I'm going to finish up the blocks for July and August. Both of those ladies wanted low volume stars. You would think I would be overflowing with low volume fabrics because they're really so me. But my stash is exceptionally bright. So I had to make a little trip to Sew Modern to pick up some fabrics.


I absolutely cannot wait to cut into this stack of yumminess!


  1. I love your rainbow stars and your low volume fabrics. Those stars will be lovely!

  2. Aww, such a shame when you *have* to go shopping for more fabric ;o) Love what you've done so far though!

  3. Beautiful blocks and what a lovely stack of fabric. Really looking forward to seeing more stars. :)

  4. I saw this block on another blog today, one of your bee-mates I assume. They are gorgeous, I love them!

  5. Beautiful blocks!! I love that they are so bright.
