November Stash Bee Block for Hive 6

Hi Laura!

Here is the block I made for you.  I hope the grays I used will fit in with the rest. Some of them are a little darker than what your sample showed.   

I saved the triangle scraps just in case you want them and will send them along with the block.   Can't wait to see them all together!

Hive 3 Trees for Judy

And that's a wrap! What a fun, fun year this has been participating in Stash Bee! Judy's simple forest blocks are already on their way...I look forward to seeing the finished top, it'll be great!

Thank you, hive-mates! It has been a great time hanging out with you and stitching up your bee-autiful blocks!

Hive 5 - November

Kristen has already received these, I’m just very forgetful about posting.  I’ve admired this block every time I’ve seen it. Definitely going on my list for 2018.

Flying Geese for Heather

I love paper piecing.  I hope this works well for your quilt.  It has been a fun year.

Scrap Bag Geese for Laura

Queen Laura asked for Scrap Bag Geese in any and all shades of pink.  Flying geese are not usually my favorite but I find I don't mind them much this way.  I enjoyed these and think that all the pink geese will look amazing together.  Can't wait to see them all fly!

Circles of Geese for Heather

Heather sent Hive 2 out with a bang with her selection of the Circle of Geese block! Paper piecing isn't usually my thing, but I enjoyed putting these blocks together. It was fun to raid my stash for 12 prints of the same color.

I dropped this in the mail today. It's been a wonderful year and I can't wait to see everyone's finished quilts.


Hive 7, November

I have had a wonderful time with Hive 7 this year. These blocks are lots of fun.

Judy's Trees

Thanks Judy!  Your tree blocks are easy, fun, and CUTE!  Just the kind of sewing I was looking for during a busy time of year.  I hope your forest quilt comes together the way you want it.  I'm loving seeing people's finished Stash Bee quilts already, although mine is still a UFO.

Hive 2 - November Flying Geese for Heather

I just learned how to do paperless paper piecing without sewing through the paper so that you can reuse your pattern and there is no tearing pieces of paper out of the seam. You can find a tutorial for this method at paperless paper piecing This was the perfect pattern to use this method. Heather gave us several color choices. So I picked yellow. This will be going out in the mail this weekend.  Can't wait to see a completed quilt.

November Hive 7

Frieda wants to make a scrappy cross quilt.  I have a gigantic pile of scraps - seriously -  and I loved making this block so I kept going.  4 was as easy as 1!  Hope you like them!

I hope you are at the meeting on Saturday - I will bring them!
