Hive Four for March

Is it Spring yet?  Its snowing outside as I type this so I'm not too sure about it.

To divert myself I've been catching up on sewing.  I completed this last week during the last snow storm.  Sewing in between shoveling is very therapeutic.

great tutorial for this block.  Patience is key to line up the seams!!  can't wait to see your layout.

In the mail this week!

Hive 4 Up From Here

Hope you like my fabric choices - I enjoyed this block.  Scant quarter is super important for the blocks that have multiple seams - ask me how I know......  We are undergoing a huge home reno to get it on the market to sell as we are also building a house so I am finding myself coming and going.  Sewing is a great diversion.  

This will go out today!  Happy Spring!

Patriotic Ohio Star Block

I was delighted with the Ohio Star block that Karen chose this month for hive 1. I'm an Ohio girl myself, originally from Toledo and then lived in Cincinnati and Cleveland as well. Knowing that her requested blocks will go toward making a quilt for veterans is even better.

I hope you like it Karen!

March Hive 1 for Karen

I'd forgotten how much I like this block.  You can color it so many ways.  I make a lot of veterans' quilts myself to donate to our local VA hospital, so my stash had plenty of fabric to choose from.  I'm glad to contribute to another vet quilt through Karen.  How nice of you to use your month for a good purpose.  I couldn't stop and just two - I kept going and have made 4 others as a start of a table topper for my mom.

Traditional Ohio Star for Karen

Such a sweet traditional block and one that I never made before.  I couldn’t resist the peace fabric—after all, I think the point of a strong military is to support and promote Peace. Thank you to all those who serve us!

Patriotic Ohio Star block for Karen

Oh say, can you see?

Ohio star... an oldie, but a goodie.  😊  Can't wait to see what you do with them all!

I made this block with scraps from a quilt I am making for my local Marathon Jam which is a 12-hour musical fundraiser for the Fisher House (similar to the Ronald McDonald House, but for military hospitals).  At our Jam, a different veteran is recognized each hour, is thanked for their service, and is presented with a patriotic quilt made by the local quilt guild.

March Hive 1 Ohio Stars

Here are your blocks for this month, Karen!  I was worried about the qst's but was super careful laying things out and only made one mistake.

These are two very different looks, so I hope they work well for your project =) . They're headed your way this afternoon.

Hive Crash for Stephanie

I loved Stephanie's Polaroid block so much that I had to crash her hive!  And as a bonus, this block called for 3 1/2" novelty squares, which is one of the sizes I cut my scraps.  I just dug into my novelty scrap drawer and picked out my favorites.  I hope you like them, Stephanie!

March Block for Karen!

Hi Karen!
Wow! My block is very red, bold and difficult to see the white. I'm sending it on to you anyway, and have cut pieces to make another block that will hopefully turn out to be more pleasing to my eye! I'll let that you be a surprise for you!
Hopefully the second one will be better! Use either one, or both if you like.
I'll get them later in the week--we're expecting another nor'easter tonight into tomorrow.

Hive 4 Block for Meredith

What a great block.  It went together so quickly and I love the result.  So many options too once you have several. Your quilt will be smashing.   In the mail to you tomorrow.
