December: The Month of Applique

 I am still chugging away at Block 21 - aka Killer Applique.  I am half way done and on track to finish by next Friday when we will start Curves in the Skill Builder Sampler.  I feel much more confident teaching curves then applique.  Yea! to a New Year and new Skill Builder topic.  :)

 I have also been working on these blocks this month for the 4x5 Modern Bee.  
 I decided because I was going to spend a lot of time on the plane flying to Abu Dhabi that I would do a handwork heavy block.
 Even with over 48 hours of total travel time, I still had tons to do when I got back. 
 Thankfully they take much less thought and skill than the "Killer Block".
The sides of the hexagons are 3/4 inch.  I English paper pieced the hexagons together and then appliqued them onto the background.
I used a lot of 5 inch charm squares that I had gotten in swaps this year in each 12.5 inch block.
 I have found that having a well stocked supply of multicolored "scraps" very handy in swaps.
 And here they are all together.
Enjoy!  Have a safe and Happy New Year!
