Finished Star Bee Blocks

Here to show you a few finished bee blocks today - all stars! I loved both of these patterns and think they will make some great quilts. First up, this block:
star bee blocks
It doesn't have a name, but you can find the tutorial here. It's really simple and looks really great.
I found it was super easy to get very precise points by pressing my HSTs open, and pressing all my other seams to the sides so that they would nest.
13 spools
 I pulled some of my favorite fabric combinations for these blocks:
stars detail 2
- Grape Kaffe Fassett shot cotton
- Type by Julia Rothman
- no selvedge left for the magenta print, unfortunately!
stars detail 3
- Tiny blue diamonds from Dear Stella
- Steel Essex linen from Robert Kaufman
- Pure Bursts (white on gray) from Stof
Unfortunately I didn't read the directions very well the first time I used this tutorial - you're supposed to square up the HSTs. Yeah....didn't do that. So the green one is a 1/2'' too big. Hopefully the queen bee will be able to use it in the back of the quilt :)
stars 4
- Sealing Wax in green by Anna Maria Horner
- Comma News in slate by Zen Chic
- and some unknown green Kaffe Fassett shot cotton
I also whipped up this cute star block from Flutter Kat's tutorial:

 I can't wait to see them in finished quilts! Linking up to Finish it Up Friday :)
