Hive 2 February block for Cheryl

It's getting late !  O no!  O no!  Where's the block from Kathy????

This has been a busy, crazy month.  I actually made up three of these fun granny square blocks a while back, and popped two of them in the mail last weekend, but I'm only now posting.

Hive 5 for Kim

I am in love with this block and your color choices!!! Can't wait to see it all together!

Hive 9 block for Colette

I finished Colette's block tonight.  I learned that I have little red print fabric but scavenged up enough to make the block.  You would think we would all have oodles of red.  I guess I have used too much and nearly ran out.  Now, I have good reason to buy more!

Hive 3 Heart for Paula

This was such a fun heart to make, thank you, Paula! I finally got it off in the mail this week, so it is winging it's way to you now!

I look forward to seeing the quilts you make with all the happy hearts!


Hive 7: PussyCat Hat

As many people know, paper piecing makes me cry, but I persevered and hope that my block, with its many imperfections will fit into Allison's vision.

I'm looking forward to March with a new block and maybe, just maybe, warmer weather and less snow.

Purple & Teal - Hive 5

When I first saw Kimberly's choice, I was worried I did not have the colors of her choice.  I was right and had to shop.  Oh, darn!

I enjoyed making these blocks and can't wait to see them playing with the others.  I met my goal of finishing blocks before the middle of the month.  Now I just have to get them in the mail.

Hive 1 February Block for Jennifer

Jennifer picked a lovely, simple "Crosses and Losses" block for Hive 1 this month.  I enjoyed how this one came together, and I think her blue and green color scheme will make for a really gorgeous quilt!

Jennifer, your block will be in the mail this week!

Hive 3 February heart Block

I have had February's block done since the first week of the month. Now that I am couch bound with the flu, I figured it's time to blog about it, especially since I am queen of March. 
Like the month's queen is chose to use pinks for my scrappy heart.  I hope she finds it useful. I will mail it by the end of the week.

Hive 3 February Block for Paula

Here's my version of the heart block for Paula.  Using HSTs and QSTs is not my favorite construction technique.  We just don't seem to get along.  I never can get those points to come together right, but I gave it my best try for Paula.  
Anyway, it's a cheerful purplish heart for February.

Stash Bee & Quilt Con

So, Emily and I are in the same Hive in the Stash Bee....we are both going to Quilt Con in Savannah (with some other non-Stash Bee friends), and we are going to room together (which we did not know until three days ago).

Emily und Ich sind in der gleichen Gruppe in der Stash Bee, und wir fahren beide nach Savannah zu Quilt Con (zusammen mit ein paar anderen Freundinnen), and wir werden auch dort in der selben Unterkunft wohnen.

 Diana put out a template a few days ago, that we all could print and attach to our Quilt Con passes to identify ourselves.  I thought it would be nice to have something more sturdy (I am a klutz!) and so I created this pin....and then for good measure, I made one for Emily too.

  Diana hat vor eine paar Tagen eine Vorlage veröffentlicht, die wir ausdrucken und an unsere Tickets kleben könnten.  Ich wollte aber etwas das ein bisschen stabiler ist - und so habe ich diese Brosche gebastelt.....und dann habe ich eine zweite gemacht, für Emily.

 They are made of hard plastic and have a pin in the back, so you can attach them to your clothing - please keep in mind that this is my first attempt at this, so be kind with your critiques (trust me, I see ALL the faults and every wobble in every line)


Die Anstecknadel is hartes Plastik, und hinten ist eine Nadel dran damit man sie sich and die Kleidung stecken kann - bitte nicht vergessen, dies ist mein erster Versuch; also seit bitte nett mit den Kritiken...

So, if you see us at Quilt Con, stop and say Hi!
