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!

Julia.....   Below are the blocks I made for you.   Hope they will work well for  your quilt.   I really enjoyed making them.    Happy Sewing!!!

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. :)

Hive 7 May Blocks

Rebecca here from One Wee Bird with Jen's blocks for May

Loved these blocks even though they were tricky little beggars at times!

Can't wait to see them all together in this fab colour range
Better get my A into G for my turn as Queen next month aaaghh

Hive 9 May blocks received

I received blocks today from Betsy (thank you daughter for the cute sketch on the envelope :), Sherry  and hive crasher Liz.  So excited to  stitch this quilt together.  Jan

Purple Majesty

I hope it is okay that I fussy cut sweetness in one of the blocks. I thoroughly enjoyed making this block as these complementary colors happen to be among my favorites (second only to yellow).  This is a definite project on my wish list.  Such happiness!  Looking forward to seeing your finished quilt.

Hive 9 - May Block for Jan

Jan picked a fun block, that was simple to make. I had thought to have my cats go in opposite directions, but since I'm directionally challenged I think they are too. But the great thing is that Jan doesn't care which way they face...Yeah!!!

I think her daughter will love the quilt, because I've seen some pretty cute blocks being made. I was supposed to mail these earlier this week, but they didn't go out until today, but they are still on time.

May block for hive 4

I'm having a hard time with the colors on the picture.  They seem a bit too dark.  Hopefully the corals are about right!

This was a nice block.  I can't say that it was a fast block for me, but that is my fault; I kept stopping to do other things.  It was easy to quickly pick it back up though.

Hive 7 May

I love paper piecing and these butterflies were so much fun.
I can't wait to see what you do with these.  Lauren
