Hive 6 March Block for Lori

Hi Lori!

At first I was thinking I wouldn't be able to make a block like you wanted because I didn't have any fish fabric!  Then I re-read your instructions and realized you gave other options and that was just for bonus points.  Hee.  Hee.  So here are the two blocks that I will be sending your way!


And the second one always makes me smile.  I have never seen blue eyed critters before and here are a whole bunch of them staring at me.  This fabric cracks me up.  These blocks were a lot of fun to make and I can't wait to see the finished quilt you make for your dad.

March blocks for Lori

Here are 2 blocks for your father's quilt Lori.  I need to remember to measure twice and cut once.  My first block was about 1/8 th  of an inch too small.  These are just right.  Can't wait to see your finished quilt!

Hive 1 March Block for Ophélie

Ophélie picked the Treasure Hunt block for our hive to make this month.  I enjoy paper piecing, so I had fun putting this one together, but I agonized for quite a while over the fabric selection (and realized my stash was pretty light on both mustard and dark pink...).  

Oph--I'll be putting your block in the mail this week.  Can't wait to see your quilt all together!

Hive 5 - March Block

This month has been crazy but I finally got a chance to sit down today and make Maja's block for March.  This was actually the first piecing I got to do on my new sewing machine (I bought a Janome 1600 straight stitch machine at QuiltCon)!  That should tell you how my month went - no sewing for almost an entire month!

Maja asked for a black and white Irish Chain block with a touch of gray.  I had already set aside all of my black and gray fabrics from my block last month so it was really easy to cut right into cutting.

Here's my finished block!


I made my strip sets a bit longer than required so I have a few extra 2" wide pieced strips that I'll send along as well.  Hopefully you can work them in to some scrappy blocks!


Hope you like how the block turned out!

March Hive 7 - Block for Em and her Bubba

Hi Bee Mates
What a quick block to make Em! Thankyou says my overcommitted brain LOL


I popped a couple of extra HST in the bag as I hadn't read you request properly and overdid the navy and underdid the grey....instructions challenge me ;)
See you next month Rebecca @oneweebird

March block Hive 7

Emily chose these beautiful colors as a reminder of her happy place.  I think they look so nice together and I am a huge HST fan!  But man - random is so hard for me!  LOL!


Hope you like it, Em!  In the mail tomorrow!  Ish...... because maybe I don't want to go to the postoffice tomorrow.....but I will try!  :)

I LOVE your color choices! I hope this fits in well with your blocks and I can't wait to see how it comes together. I also love that you created your own swatch based on a picture you took. This quilt is you through and through. :)

March Meandering for Patty

This was the perfect block for a relaxing evening listening to music and just going with the flow.  My first block ever using just solids.  Patty, I think your quilt will be lovely with all of the unexpected lines and soft colors.  I hope this works for you.
