Artist's Studio ~ A Bee Block

I hope you are having a restful weekend. It has been absolutely beautiful here. Cool temperatures breezed in Friday night and it's been glorious since then. I finished another bee block. This one is for Amy. Her theme was an Artist's Studio. I knew that I wanted to incorporate quilting in this studio since that is the first thing I think of when I think of art. Then color! I have wanted to make a Circle of Geese block for what feels like forever. I even have a set printed on freezer paper, colored and ready to go, just never made it. Have you made one? Aren't they fun? Well I decided to make a miniature one for Amy's block. I wanted it to look like a painting because the only thing I could think of that would be better that sewing a quilt would be painting one, right?! I was going to add more details to her block. I wanted to make a shelf holding paints and brushes but I really feel that I add too much to these paper pieced blocks sometimes. I went with the "less is more" approach and I quite like it.
