November Bee Block

**This is due at the November meeting but is here in case you want to start early**

Name: Cynthia C

Block Design Name: Half Square Triangle block with accent

Link to block tutorial: N/A follow the directions below in the pictures

Color Selection Low volume print, soft greens and blues, turquoise. 

Please name some designers or line of fabrics you like that will help us pick the right fabric for your block
Not picky. No "saturated" prints.

Two blocks please. Took me about 30 minutes, fabric selection to finished. Each block: Cut 2 squares 7". One square of low volume, one of print. Also cut 4 - 2" squares. Take low volume square and colored square,  sew 1/4" around the edges. Cut into 4 pieces on the diagonal. Sew the 2" block in the opposite color (blue) to the green point on the angle. Trim press and make into block. Do not trim the blocks.  So you will have 2 blocks: outer fabric is low volume,  middle is green or blue, center is opposite blue or green. Approximate finished size is 8-1/2"
