Hive 4 March Block Completed

Hive 4 March Block Completed
Here is my completed block for March for Amanda.
I have to tell you that I really love Fresh Lemon Quilts and I have been wanting to try this block for a long time. I love your colors that you chose, and I really LOVE how it turned out. I only regret that I did not have time to get more than one block completed for you.

I was torn about mixing solids with prints, so I decided to use all prints.
I hope you like it too, and I cannot wait to see them all together.

I started paper piecing last year, and I really like how it makes sure that all of my points line up perfectly. The thing I have found that helps me in assembling the completed squares is that I do not remover the paper until completed. I run a basting stitch around the outside of each square. Then when you put the four pieces together, they line up even better without any fabrics shifting.


You asked what place we would like to travel to. My one place that is on my bucket list is Australia. I imagine that life there must be so different than here in the States. I am fortunate enough to live near the ocean, but our oceans in Northern America are very salty, dark blue and cold. I want to swim near the great barrier reef and be amazed at how many creatures there are under those beautiful waters. I fear, though, that if I travel there, I will never want to come home.

I look forward to seeing the wonderful work for my block coming next month.
