Hive 2 May 2015 Block

I really love this type of block - sew it together one way, cut it up, and it becomes a whole different looking block!  Thank you for sharing the instructions, I can see how this one could be addictive.

This month's questions is about inspiration.  I tend to get inspired by either a pattern or fabric or colors.  When I see one of these that I really like, such as the Doe fabric line by Carolyn Friedlander or a plus quilt, or paper pieced stars, I like to then personalize the idea and make it my own.  I like to do something unexpected or unique to add my stamp and make it my own.  For example, I am working on a triangle quilt using the traditional triangle pattern, but I decided to make a beachy looking quilt so that by squinting from a distance you can see the waves, the sand, the sky and the sun.  I had fun with this by quilting birds and fish.  It's a traditional design personalized.
