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!
