Belated Bee Blocks

Those of you who with good memories may remember that I signed up for a Bee earlier this year.  Some of my readers are in the same Bee and have had the good grace not to point out that, despite an enthusiastic start, I am now running behind on my Bee blocks.  Once again I am laying the blame squarely on the Christmas Fair.

This morning I wondered what I should make for the Christmas Fair but instead mutinied and chose to do my October Bee blocks.  I already had all the instructions printed out, and my chosen fabrics fussy cut and ready to go, so I decided to see if I could get them done this morning.

Two hours later:
These are Polaroid blocks for Twinkle Toes Jo - the outer block measures about 10" across the top.  The inner image + white frame are exactly Polaroid sized.  Jo says she wants to arrange the blocks in a 'scattered' formation, as if the Polaroids have been chucked onto the quilt.  I can't wait to see how it looks!

Now I might go and get started on my November selvedge blocks for Dandelion Liz.  God forbid I might actually catch up before the month is up!
