Hive 6 Block for Kimberly

Kimberly, thank you for a quick and easy block. I'll remember this one for times I need a quick child's quilt, or just feel like sewing something easy (all the time!).  I put these in the mail this morning. Enjoy!

Bee Hive 2

Happy Birthday your block is being mailed today!

May Hive 2 Converging Corners

Hi All
I usually love all types of improvisational type blocks that give some freedom to create but for some reason I struggled with this block and getting the strips to work out to the right size.  I sent two blocks as one has a little smudge that should be ok, but thought I'd make another one in case it didn't work out.  They also seem to be a little too full in the middle and not lay flat.  It's a really cool block and the secondary design is super cool.  Can't wait to see them all together.  Hope you like these and they will work with all the others.


Hive 6 Blocks for Kimberly

I love how easy this block was to make!  If it wasn't for the fact that my daughter is graduating and my life is chaotic right now, I would have made a couple more.  This is how many I could squeeze in.  Hope you like them, Kimberly!

Hive 2, May Block for Kate

I'm not sure why this block took me so long to make when I've made it before.  I left it big so you could trim down yourself.  Hope you like it Kate.

Hive 4 Converging Corners for Bethany...

Here's my May Block for Bethany. I would have never thought to put purple and peach together but I think this quilt is going to be STUNNING! It was raining when I took the photo so it's a little dark.

MAY HIVE 7 Block

This block was fun to make, I don't do a lot of paper piecing and it took me a few hours to get it going right but I cant wait to see all the blocks together. Block was mailed on Monday he 22nd.

Hive 2 May block for Kate

Kate, I've had this finished for a week now, but as usual I'm slow to mail and post!  I really enjoyed this one - we have similar tastes in bright, saturated fabric I think. ;)  And what's not to love about rummaging through the scrap bins?!  

Hope you like.  I'll get it in the mail by week's end.

Happy Quilting!

May Blocks for Bethany {Hive 4}

These were fun to put together, Bethany! I did not have a lot of each color, but these did come together quite nicely. I used a lot of Carolyn Friedlander Architextures since you mentioned those fabrics in your original post. :)
