April Block for Heather

I had a lot of fun working on this block. . . . my biggest problem was picking what colors to use!

I can just imagine how fun and colorful this quilt will be when it is finished!

Thank you, Heather, for the opportunity to make this block for you.  It is in the mail today so you should be seeing it shortly.

In peace & pieces,

Sherry V.

Hive 1 Block for Heather

Hi Heather!
I had your block finished and ready to mail in the first week of April, but it was fun and I wanted to use more scraps, so I made you a second one! I'm going to keep that one a surprise!
I should get them in the mail to you this week.
I hope you like them!

Hive 1 Block for Heather

Greetings from Florida! I hope everyone is doing well. Here is my block for April. Heather asked for a fun scrappy block - I think this will fit the bill. I always struggle when it comes to putting together scrappy blocks because my OCD mind just wants some sort of pattern and structure in the chaos but I just love the look of a finished scrappy quilt. I'm looking forward to seeing her finished quilt.

Tu-Na Quilts: A Block for Meredith in Hive 4

I spent a good long time picking out the fabric for this quick and easy block but I think it turned out lovely. I hope Meredith thinks so too. You can find the pattern here.

Meredith asked for medium grays, dark blues, coral, teal, yellow, and lime green.
I didn't have all the fabrics I needed in my stash, so I shopped at three stores. I found what I needed as well as several more pieces I didn't.

This block is on it's way to Meredith in Albuquerque a little late but it will get there soon.

What I Learned Today:
  1. No matter how carefully I pick out the fabric for a block or quilt, I usually change my mind at least once about one or more fabrics.
  2. Be open to using more color combinations in my quilts. I would never have chosen these colors for one quilt but I think it will turn out lovely.
  3. Albuquerque is very difficult to spell.

April for Amanda -Hive 4

I'm always amazed at all the different blocks people choose each year.  This is a new one for me.  The finished quilt should be fun.

Love you gifts to my aunt and uncle today. 2017 Hive 4 Finished Quilt

Thank you to my talented Hive 4 bee-mates  This was such a fun quilt to make.  I found the perfect backing fabric because my uncle is a crazy fan of old westerns.  It’s a vintage fabric I found on e-bay.  What a lovely adventure.  I quilted it trying to replicate lassos, and it is not perfect but I think he gets the picture.  They were so happy, they cried.  Surely, for me the best part of Quilting is working with bee mates who love to sew and then gifting the final product.  Than you again!

Hive 4 March Block

Well I finally can say I am caught up with blocks for Hive 4.  So embarrassed, but here is your block Meredith.
