Honey Pot Bee Urban Woven Block

Honey Pot Bee Princesses..Welcome!...

As you may guess, I am new to blogging.. in fact, I learned it just for you!  So please excuse any tech errors.. and enjoy the block!

Urban woven
block designed by Debbie Hagy for the Honey Pot Bee
finished 10” by 15”
Suggested fabrics:
1 very light, or very dark background fabric… ¼ yard

4 accent fabrics..  I use 3” read solid” (from a distance they look solid)fabrics),  and 1 more of a printy print.. I  used the printy print as accent #1(green in the photo) in the place with the most seams… the seams show less…

My background fabric is:
     Meadow Storm Misty from Victoria FindlayWolfe (Marcus Brothers)
Accents prints are:
     Garden Dreamer from Maureen Cracknell (Art Gallery)

From background fabric cut 1 strip 2 ¼” wide   Cut 7 2 ¼” squares. Cut 1 strip 4” wide, cut (3)  4” squares cut squares in half on the diagonal, twice to make 12 triangles  (10 of which you will use).

From Accent fabric #1 (green)  Cut (1) 2 ¼” Cut (8) 2 ¼” squares, and (1) rectangle 2 ¼” by 6 1/2"

From Accent fabric #2 (orange) Cut (1) 2 ¼” strip, subcut (2) 5 ¾” by 2 ¼” rectangles, and (1) 7 ½” by 2 ¼” this pieced will be trimmed after the block is finished.

From Accent fabric #3 (yellow) Cut (1) 2 ¼” strip, subcut (1) 5 ¾” by 2 ¼” rectangles, and (4) 6 ½” by 2 ¼” these pieces will be trimmed after the block is finished.

From Accent fabric #4 (purple) Cut (1) 2 ¼” strip, subcut (1) 5 ¾” by 2 ¼” rectangles, and (4) 6 ½” by 2 ¼” these pieces will be trimmed after the block is finished.

1.Begin piecing with the lower right hand corner. 
  Sew (2) white triangles to the accent #1 rectangle. (A "Sleepy" unit). 
 Sew an accent #1 square to  (2) accent #4 6 1/2" rectangles.        Don't worry about how extra long some of the pieces are  ou will trim down later...


Press as shown below, then match seams and sew across...This is one of those rare places where I pin!


Press towards Accent #4 It should look like this...



2. Now.. piece (4) background squares, (2) accent #1 squares, 
and (1) accent #3  5 3/4" rectangle together as shown below

Press as shown below

add (2) accent #2 5 3/4" rectangles to  the pieced square. 


3.Now, piece a "Goofy" with 2 background triangles, 1 background square, 1 accent #1 square, and 1 accent #3 6 1/2" rectangle.


Sew as shown below

Press as shown below.   You have now made a "Goofy" unit  .



 Piece 2 background triangles and an accent #3  6 1/4" rectangle as you did in step #1("Sleepy" unit)



Sew "Goofy" and "Sleepy" to step #2 unit

4. Piece a row starting with an accent #4 5 3/4" rectangle. Sew an          accent #1 square to either side,
     then add an accent #4 6 1/4"  rectangle to either end.
    Press towards the accent #1 squares.

5.  Sew everything together as shown below.

6. Now you need to make a pair of "'Goofy" units,
 1 right and 1 left, using background triangles and squares, accent #1 squares, and accent#3 6 1/4' rectangles.


  7. Sew the "Goofy" units to an accent #2  7 1/2" rectangle.
      Press as shown below.
8.Sew all units together. Press..

 9. Trim to about 10 1/2" by 15 1/2".

All Done!!
