Here are the latest blocks I've completed for the various bees that I am participating in.
First up is a tall, sweater wearing girl for Wendy. I used light weight washable yarn for the sweater portion.
And here's a block of pluses and minuses for Amanda.
Maverick Stars for Jessica.
Jess' block (see her quilt inspiration here)
A textured block with a pop of color for Sarah (full shot of block was blurry so here's just a snippet of the block).
Patchwork blocks for Audrie.
A tulip block for Penny.
Neptune squares for Julie.
And Spiderweb blocks for Natalie.
A few months ago, Rossie invited me to join the new bee she started with Cheryl (of Naptime Quilter). The bee is based on the mid-century modern design aesthetic and all of the blocks will be mostly improvised and pattern free.

Her concept for the month is creating a kelp quilt with these varying shades of red and orange fabric that she flat dyed (simply robin tutorial here).
Here's the kelp block I made. The hand dyed fabric was really fun to work with. It's so saturated and full of interesting little variations.
