Hive 3 Block for July

Block for July

What a lovely colour combo, my first block for the bee, three years ago used this colour combo, just love it!
Had a great time pulling these colours together, had more blues than orange so went with the blue option.
Love the way the block turned out, except for the pearl bracelets that aren't straight and creates the illusion the whole block is off . 

Its in the mail !

Blocks for Marie

Hi Marie!
My blocks went in the mail to you yesterday morning. I hope the fabric selections are what you were looking for. I made more HSTs than I needed for your blocks, so I sent along the extras. I thought it was better for you to mix them in with yours than to have blocks with the same fabrics in them. 
Stay cool!

Hive 4 Block for Lori

Enjoying the dog days of summer while sewing these cuties together.  Reminds me that fall is just around the corner.  Am I the only one who thinks summer goes by too quickly?  Thank you, Lori.  I really enjoyed making these blocks, and it gave me an opportunity to add orange strings to my string stash.  I am about to start my first ever string quilt and discovered I had NO orange in the box.

Hive 2 July Block for Julie

Hi, All

Queen Julie gave us two choices, a star block or a 16 patch, to be included in a breast cancer quilt. What a great cause! And what could be more cheery than a scrappy quilt?! Here's my block, Julie.  

I hope it works well in the overall scheme.  It will go in the mail soon.  

Happy Quilting!

Angel Blocks for Hive 9

Marie had some slightly more traditional fabric requests this month that posed some challenges for some of her hive mates. Luckily for her, my aunt had given me some fabrics a while back that fit the bill. I just had to dig deep into my scrap bins in the hopes that I didn't donate them at our guild's recent fabric auction! Thankfully, I found some of them so I made 2 blocks for her.

Marie, I'll get these off into the mail later this week. I hope you like them and that they work well with the others that you receive!

Maple Leaf Block for Greta

Miracle of miracles - I have a block made for Greta! It's so nice to be sewing again, even if it's only a few blocks. Thanks to my awesome hive mates for carrying me along these last few months while I took the time to focus on my health. You guys rock!

I'll be getting this block in the mail to you later this week!

2016 Hive 1 quilt gifted

Hi Alison, Heather, RobinSue, Tori, Jacki , Sarah, Stephanie, Laura, 
Tanyia and Cheri from 2016 Hive 1

The quilt we made last year is on it's way to a litlle 7 year old girl who 
was in a bad car accident with her parents.

She has to stay in the hospital for a while and I am sure this quilt will cheer her up :-)

Thanks again for making this quilt with me so a little girl will have a comfort blanket!
