Hive 1

Finally done with this block for Liz. It was a challenge. I made it and realized that it was too small, so I had to take it completely  apart and resew it. I think it is a great block and will make a lovely quilt, but, I never want to make another. 
I haven't been sewing lately and I was not paying attention to the quarter inch seam. A little out of practice.  With all the seams in this block that does make a big difference. 
It is done and will be on its way by Tuesday. 

Enjoy the holiday weekend.

HI Rose!
I'm sorry the block was a challenge, but I love how it came out!!
Thank you for all the effort you put into it!
Happy Memorial Day!

I think it turned out well, even if it was challenging. I find that when I make a block like this with so many seams, that I check the sizes as a put pieces together rather than waiting until the very end. If each subset as I go along is the right size, the end product will be too. I hope you are enjoying a Memorable weekend.

Thanks Liz and Kathryn. I do like how it looks and I have made blocks with many seams, I just haven't been able to get my sewing rhythm back since our move. Our old house should be sold by mid June. Maybe then I can work on some sewing. I really do miss my quiet time with my quilting.
Rainy weekend here in Jersey. Enjoying time with my sweet granddaughter. Rose
