Hive Three block for Diana

My name is Marie and this is my first Stash Bee.  I enjoyed putting this block together and hope Diana likes it.  Will be put in the mail tomorrow.
So, I live in Mt. Desert, Maine, which is on the same island as Bar Harbor.  I've lived here for quite a while but grew up in Massachusetts.  I have two grown daughters and two beautiful grandchildren.  No pets but plenty of plants to take care of.  I started quilting when I was 26 but have been sewing since I was 12.  My mother and grandmother were both knitters and sewists and I have followed them doing both as well.  I think it ends with me, though, since both my daughters don't appear to be interested in either.  I have been waiting to find Carkai by Carolyn Friedlander at our quilt shops but nothing yet.  I do my own quilting for baby quilts and wall hangings but send bed size quilts to a friend to be longarm quilted - not enough room where I sew.   Right now I'm reading "Dead Wake" by Eric Larson and really enjoy it.  He knows how to tell a story.  And I just spent the better part of Saturday watching Grace and Frankie (I think that's the name of it) on Netflix.  Lily Tomlin is great!
Well, I think that's it.  I'm eager to get to know you all and look forward to the next block.

I love the block, especially the plaid looking fabric. Thank you!
