Hive 2 Block for Heather

Hi all,
Paper pieced blocks are a challenge as my printer does not have an "actual size" or 100% setting and the patterns always print small.  So, I play around with enlarging and can usually get close. But this time.. it was a struggle so I contacted Heather to send me papers but something happened and I never got them.  So, I went ahead and made the alternate block and I'll also send the Circle of Geese block that I made but I think it's a tad too big. 

It's been a fun year! I've got my top pieced together but need to decide if I'm going to do borders and then to quilt it on my longarm.


Finished Quilt

I was the March queen for Hive 6, and many of you sent blocks for my dad's I Spy quilt. He has been in a long term care facility since May, and seems quite happy there. The quilt is finished, and is on it's way  to him for Christmas. Thank you to everyone who contributed to this project.

Hive 5 November - Scrappy Cross Plus Block

Hive 5 November Tutorial - Scrappy Cross Plus Block

I am really pleased with this block - I love the teal, green blue ripples that I have fussy cut to lighten into the center cross. From a distance it has a three dimension / optical awesomeness! 
It's in the post.

Queen Carolyn Block 8

I started work on a mystery quilt a couple of weeks ago and clue two required gaggles of geese, so this block went together pretty fast!  Love your colors, Carolyn.  I just hope that it is okay that the pinwheel was all in the same color group.

Kristen asked for some scrappy Cross Plus blocks.  I've made this block a few times before and love how quickly it goes together.  Here's my finished block:

Thanks for a fun year, Hive 5!

November block for Laura

This is the block for Laura our November queen.  I bet the quilt she makes will look great.  It's in the mail Laura.

The Finish line for Hive 5!

We made it (with an hour and a half to spare).  So sorry this is late - November flew by.

The block was easy to put together and the colors will pop so well!  I look forward to seeing it.

Hive 5, you have been wonderful!  Thank you so much!
