    If you're feeling confident this one is really striking and has a lot of angles. I think you could do a lot with it if you use different fabrics:



    I haven't done it myself but she seems to have clear instructions and includes the templates so it may be a good one. It's a 12.5" unfinished (12" finished) block. Here's the link to the instructions: Vermont 12" block

    Sandy,
    There is a block called honey bee. It involves applique which is why I haven't made one, but they are cute! I prefer to piece as I can do that faster.
    In this case, I do believe that she was referring to a quilting bee though! Trust me I think we have all had those moments.

    sarahgw - is your block 12.5" finished or unfinished? Unfinished is before you sew it to either sashing or another block. This can make a difference if you are making a pattern with points like a pinwheel. That extra half inch can mean that you loose all of the tips on the outer edges of your block. (It is not a pretty sight.)
    Happy block hunting!

    Hi Sara

    I think just about any pieced block is going to have angles in it and any block can be adapted to be a 12" block, even if that means making 4 x 6" blocks and joining them together. Here are a couple links to pattern sites I use, just have a browse through till you find something you like.
