Hive 1 - October Block for Karen

 Hive 1 - October Block for Karen

While this block is not a difficult block, picking fabrics for it was a daunting task. I kept second and third guessing myself and then realized it was now the end of the month.  I had to just do it, hopefully the fabrics will work for you, it was very hard not sneaking in any tiny skulls or lightening bolts 😆 
This is going in the mail today!

Hive 1 Block for Karen

 I love how this block can look so many different ways.  You’ve inspired me to try this in the New Year.  (Because what we all need is yet another quilt in the making.....or perhaps that’s just me).  It will be vibrant and lovely!

Blocks for Karen

 Fun blocks to make Karen---although I did mix up placement because I was trying to put them together too quickly😞! I fixed them!

Can't wait to see how your quilt comes out!

They should go in the mail this week.

Hi Karen,

Hope these blocks will work for what you have in mind.

They were so easy to make, so I just made two at once. I like the idea of the log cabin effect you were writing about.

The blocks went into the Post on Wednesday, so they hopefully arrive with you soon.

Stay safe.

Greetings from (not surprising) rainy Ireland,

Sheltering At Home - Our Story -- Our Neighbourhood

Hello to all my Stash Bee buddies.   Today is an wildly meaningful day because its the day I get to share my finished 2020 Stash Bee Quilt.

But First...

Many of you know how vital I believe it is that we document our lives in 2020 because these are, in all likelihood, the most extraordinary days any of us will ever witness.  You perhaps also know I spent bags of time this spring searching for some way to remind myself that everything going on in the world right then was not PERMANENT; I wanted something joyful to look forward to during the really bad, terrible, awful days when it seemed possible that the worst outcomes were gonna happen.   

When I realized I was part of a wonderful world-wide community of "Makers", each with a story to tell, I knew exactly what I needed.....a quilt to celebrate our lives in 2020 and to remind me that we are all in this together. 

I imagined a quilt that would tell our stories of "Sheltering at Home" so I asked my hive-mates to stretch their imaginations and make a big quilt block about their home/neighbourhood and to share a bit about their life during the early days of Covid-19. 

I was simply blown away by how everyone in Hive 4 reached out  and went so far above and beyond my wildest expectations to make something personal for my quilt...some of you made more than one block....and I even received blocks from folks in other hives.  My heart is full.  Here is our quilt.  

Its just stunning. I am blessed to be part of this group and grateful for all the work you did to make my vision a reality.

Hive 1 October blocks finished

 I have more that enough scraps in my stash to make not just one but two blocks this month.  If you need an angel block, consider it made.  I live very close to the Perkiomen Valley here in southeastern Pennsylvania, so this block is well loved here.  Enjoy.
