~Hive #3~ Dresden Fan for Kelli

So this block was a little frustrating and challenging for me.  First attempt - I didn't added the 1/4" seam allowance on the template included with the tutorial and they ended up being too small.  So, now I have two 12-1/2" blocks for me to use!

Stashbee  - first try fail

Second attempt was a little less frustrating because I went and bought a dresden ruler to aid me in cutting.  (Jo-Ann's had Wrights®/EZ Easy Dresden Quilting Ruler for 1/2 off - yay!!)  So, after sewing all the pieces together it actually ends up the correct 14-1/2" block. ;0)

Stashbee August Hive #3

I used the Kona Nightfall for the dark - I really like it with the orange fan blades.

Hope you like it Kelli!

Thank you! You can find the tutorial by clicking on the Hive #3at the top and then click on the August 2012 by Kelli's name. Also if you click on the Blog Archive (right side toward bottom) it's the fifth item up for August.
