April block- Hive 7

So this one had me a little nervous after reading everyone's comments but in the end it comes together so quick and easy I'm thinking of putting together one for myself!

Trickiest part was figuring out how to trim the block which resulted in one slightly under 11 inches so I'm sending you two :-)

Hive 7, April block for Andrea

Quick to put together. Will definitely try it again! Although trimming took more brain power than expected😉 Enjoy. Can't wait to them all together,

Hive 3

I've been working on the block for this month for a while. I made the first block.  It had too much white in the black. I didn't like it.  I then made another and didn't like quality of black. It came out a little small. Vacation got in the middle so could not do another.  Finally made the third yesterday.  I am sending you all three.  I hope you can use them some where.
It was a great block and can't wait to see it

Christmas in April for Jennifer Hive 9

Fun little blocks!  Sorry it took to the end of the month - but they are adorable and I think you'll like them!

Can't wait to see this all put together!!!

Hive 3 - April Blocks

These are my April blocks.  I think this block will make a beautiful quilt. 
I can't wait to see all of the blocks together, I love the secondary patterns that are formed.

I hope you like them!

Hive 2, April block for Lanakila

You should say it is easy........
First problem = what color!!!!!!!!
Yellow-Orange because 27 April is our Kingsday, Violet is also a royal color.
The Blue-Violet was a bit difficult to find.
I really used my color wheel a lot.
Sometimes it is very handy to have a lot of quilting tools.
This is the first time for me to work this way.
Have to say, had fun making it.
Answers to the questions are.......
one = kingsday and two = I like to look a lot on pinterest at longarm quilting [link] because recently I am a proud owner of the berninaQ24 [link]. 
Lanakila, hope you like this block?
It is going on the mail today.
Warm regards, Marga
Have a nice day

April Hive 7 Block for Andrea

I finished Andrea's block this morning and got it in the mail today. The sewing was fairly easy, but the trimming was nerve-wracking! The perspective is off a little in my photo.

I really enjoyed sewing with these colors.

Happy quilting!


Hive 4 Xs

Here are my Xs!  I apparently can't read my own notes so the big was is one size bigger than it should be, but better bigger than smaller!  They're a bit wavy, but that should quilt out fine...and I don't know how to get rid of the slight wave.

April blocks for Helen

I had so much fun making Plus blocks for Helen that I chose a plus block of my own for when I'm Queen Bee in June.
These are on their way to you, Helen.
