Hive 9 - October & November

It's my turn to apologize for being late. The blocks were sent off a couple of weeks ago but I never got around to posting the photos.

The 9 patch was easy, although I did struggle to find enough purple prints. I have turned into such a Kona solids girl and purple isn't really my color. Neither is teal :( but I think I managed to find enough. I certainly stretched the definition of purple...

Ah....and here is some made-fabric. I love 15 Minutes of Play and was very excited to get to it. I trimmed it to 12,5, just to be safe. I know it said 12"in the instructions, but it looked to me like it was a 12,5" block, so I wanted to make sure. You can always trim more later ;)

This is my last post as I will not be returning for the 2017 Stash Bee. I really like the concept, but as a quilter I have moved more and more into the improv territory. At this point, I just don't want to make "traditional" blocks anymore; there aren't enough of us free-spirited minds around to make-up an improv hive ;) I hope y'all continue to have fun and do what you love!!!

I think there might actually be enough people to make an improv hive! Have you asked?
