Newbee Bee June Block of the Month

This may be the earliest that I’ve gotten my block of the month done for the bee I’m in on Threadbias. This month’s queen asked for a monochromatic green Courthouse Steps block. After hitting the remnant bin at my LQS, here’s my contribution.

I also noticed that I didn’t do a post with April’s block. This one is one of my favorites and I definitely plan on doing more of these in the future. It’s a Great-Granny Block based on a tutorial from Bee in My Bonnet. It’s supposed to be squared up to 12.5″, but since this is being mailed, the queen for the month asked that they not be squared up in case it stretches. Also that will allow her room to trim to make them all match up.
