I'm currently participating in the Flickr [3 x 6] Sampler Quilt Mini Bee swap. (Click the button to the right to visit). We are placed in a "hive" with 6 other "bees" and trade 12" finished blocks. You make a block for each person according to their color preferences. The two hives I'm in are for blocks that are a star pattern and the other is a block made of only solids.
This is my tester block for the star hive that I'll be making for the other bees.
The block is a paper pieced star called Betelgeuse and is available from equiltpatterns.com. It's surprisingly simple for such a wonderful block.
