Hello! My name is Melissa, from Hive 7. I generally prefer the summer because I have more time to sew, and to post, (and try to come up with a block!) but I am excited I got March since it's my birth month!
I enjoyed the Stash Bee SO much last year. I finished this quilt for my sister:
I love scrappy quilts. I have made quite a few, and they turn out so lovely with so much character!
The block I chose is Bonnie Hunters' sister's choice block (there are a few variations of this block, I like hers)
Here are two of the blocks I made. They finish at 10", so I knew I would need to add some of my own to the ones I am being sent, and they are really quick and easy!
The only "requirements" I have are :
* to use purple for the star points, and have it be the same.
* 9 patch can be any two fabrics, a color and a neutral, both of the ones I shared have 5 colored and 4 neutral, you can do it however you would like, some of the ones I made have 5 neutral and 4 colors.
* It can be as scrappy as you would like! If scrappy isn't your thing then don't make it as scrappy. I chose this block to help use up my 2.5" blocks/strips.
* Please save the little corners from the star points (as bonus triangles explained here: Bonus triangles [you do not need to be exact, I am not :p I was thinking about using them in the border] If you don't want to sew them, could you please send them to me?
My question - What is your favorite color? Is it your favorite color for quilting also?
My answer - My favorite color is purple, but I don't use it as much in quilting, unless it's something for me.
