Hive 1 October Angel Blocks

I was asked to make 2 Angel blocks for Tanyia. I really like using my stash and had to dig a bit to find fabrics that would work.  Then I made sure to make some notes about which fabrics for which geese and was happy when it all came together.  At least until I looked at the picture.
I looked and looked but I knew something was just not right about it...
So, my seam ripper and I had some quality time together and now it's all better.
I'll be sending this along soon!
Happy Quilting!

Hive 2 for October and November and Hive 7 Angel block

I completely forgot that I did not post about my blocks for October and November!  But, according to my tracking numbers the blocks were received so here are the pictures:

There were two blocks for October:

And, it does not appear that I took a picture of the November block. . . . unless it is on my iPad!

I will have to check and if it is there I will edit this post to add it.

I volunteered to do an Angel block for Hive 7. . . . and this was a definite stretch to my "comfort zone" as far as colors. . . but it was fun and I hope that it can be used in her quilt.

I had fun this past year with the swap and hope that I can make it into another Hive for next year.

Happy quilting,

Angel Block for Hive 2

I heard the call for a block angel and quickly offered.  So many have given extra to me and I wanted to pay it forward.  Fortunately, I had a free weekend and the right colors in my collection.

I love the blue and yellow combination.  You know what that means, another idea on the list!

To late.......

....but she knows the block is on its way.
I don't think it is the best position to be the queen bee from November.
As like others I too was busy with other things than the Stash Bee block.
So sorry Mary Ann, the block went on the mail yesterday.
Here are the pictures.
It is an easy block to make. I used some tools to make it more easy for me.
A little bit of chain sewing.
The trash from cutting the squares the right size.
Loving it when everything goes so smoothly.
Mary Ann hope you like youre block?
Thanks to all the ladies who made this a great event.
It was great to be part of this.
For every one have a nice Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Warm regards from Holland

Angel blocks for Hive 2 September

I was asked to make two angel blocks for Hive 2, and was happy to oblige!  The only problem was finding two colors I had 8 different fabrics in large enough pieces.  My stash took a real hit making blocks for the #quiltsforpulse project, and I am slowly rebuilding.  I had a ton of blue, but it appeared so did everyone else, so I went with orange and yellow:

The center top block on the orange looks yellowy but it is orange in real life. albeit a lighter shade than its neighbors.  

I'll get these in the mail tomorrow!

Stephanie's November Blocks

Just under the wire!! Phew!!  Autumn is so beautiful, as the colors of leaves are exposed and nature shows off. I liked sewing these blocks. MQC is tried and true, and all of these stars sparkle. Here you go , Stephanie, and Happy Anniversary! (slightly belated...) This has been a wonderful hive, all of you so generous and talented. Hugs, Jane Holbrook

Hive 4 last block

Can't believe how fast Stash Bee went this year and the final block is done. Forgot to snap a photo of it assembled before wrapping up to post so here's the before shot!

Thank you all in Hive 4 for a great Bee!
