This month blocks: two intricate designs that are actually super simple to make!!

I hope many of you will join... it will be a fun growing experience, there will be prizes, linky and much more!!
Molli Sparkle's "The Honey Pot Bee" I am going to be a QUEEN (in March), but I decided to participate also in other months because this is such a fun community event and I don't want to miss out! So even if I have no specific plan for the quilt, no idea what color scheme to use, etc, I started with one of the blocks of this month
Scrappy/Disney strawberry! Pattern links at mollisparkles.com
I love it! So scrappy, so random, so colorful, so fun... totally me! :)
I may do the other block for January, but I am not a big fan of star blocks... we'll see!
And last, but not least...
In this first week of the year I always like to participate into different events... and since I only have very limited time, I like to make pieces that fulfill multiple purposes.
So... this is my entry for Project Quilting (season 8) (to fit in this week theme, I used 8 praire points on each side :) )
... this is my mini for my collection of mini Pantone Color of the Year 2017 (Greenery... which for me is not just a single color because it reminds me of all the greens in nature, thus the super scrappy look)
... this is the piece I tested for a friend (Yanicka) who developed this new technique to make these super cool and modern design: it is NOT paper piecing, it is much much simpler! For the pattern and more information, visit Yanicka's blog!
Heart of Jade - 18''x18''

Emerald, Radiant Orchid, Marsala, Rose Quartz+Serenity (2013-2016 Pantone "Color of the Year")
