I am so embarrassed that I am just posting getting the block completed and mailed to Paulette today.  January and so far February has kicked my bottom.   But looking always at that full glass...the rest of the year should be smooth sailing.  So here are Paulette's block that I thought was so much fun to make.  I made two since I am feeling the yellow one may be too scrappy.   Happy sewing to all my Bee friends.  February block is almost done and should be mailed by the end of the week.  Yay

February - Hive 7

This month was the Disappearing 9 Patch.  The block is simple.  It goes together very quickly.  Whipped up the first block the first day of the tutorial.  One of my goals this year is to make at least two blocks for everyone.  The second block took longer as I really had to dig through the stack for "male" fabrics.

They look a bit wonky in the photo but they're really not!


Hive 4

Here is my block!  It's been done for at least a week, but I procrastinated on taking the picture because my phone died.  (And of course there were zero other ways to take a picture of the block in the house. :p)

Sorry for the shadowy picture - by the time I got out the Ipad to take the picture it was a dreary day.  But it's done!  I really like the colors and can't wait to see the final product.

One flying geese pinwheel block - all finished and in the mail in the morning!

Sorry, I only had window light on a dreary day, so it's not the best picture.

Hive 4 March Block for Katie

The first thing I thought when I saw the tutorial was... I've seen this block before ...because I had.  I just made this block at the end of last years Stash Bee with the same colors so it was total deja vu for me.

It will be interesting to see how this quilt comes out....Block is in the mail to you this week :)

Finished Quilt - 2017 Hive 1

Excited to share my finished Stash Bee quilt from my turn as queen of Hive 1 last year.  I couldn't be more pleased with how it came out!

Thanks to everyone in Hive 1 for their contributions.  I love having something made by friends from all over the world!

February, Hive 4

This was a fun little block!  Katie asked for this flying geese beauty-everything came from my scrap boxes - I have a LOT of scraps and I have them all sorted according to color so it was pretty easy to sort out what I needed.  Love to use scraps!  Hope this fits the bill - enjoy!

Block for February Queen

I have once again been computer challenged when trying to get the picture to show up for this post.
Maybe I need a computer class..haha.  I really enjoyed making this block and had enough fabric cut to make two of them. They will be in the mail Saturday.

Completed Quilt from Hive 4 in 2016

I was Queen Bee in September, 2016. I received these great blocks and had the top completed for a while, but just got around to quilting and binding it. Thanks for all who sent in blocks. Now to work on my 2017 blocks!
