Block for Queen Meredith

Here is my block for July.  Orange and Navy are among my favorite colors, and it seems I have plenty of lighter shades of blue as well. I sent this block a week ago, so it should already be at its destination.  It's untrimmed as requested.  I look forward to seeing the wedding quilt put together!

Maple Leaf for Greta

This is my maple leaf block for Greta - hope you like it! 


July Block for Karen Hive 6

Hi Karen,

I made these several weeks ago and thanks to Emily's reminder, am doing my post today and will get them in the mail on Monday!


Since they were small, I made two pumpkins for Lori's patch.  It also helped that I had several fabrics that I thought would work...that isn't always the case.  One pumpkin is a more traditional orange (and white) while the other pumpkin has a few additional colors.  Hopefully it'll still work though.
Lori has already received these since it's been a busy summer and I'm behind on almost everything.  At least, that's what it feels like. :)

Scrappy Pumkins for - Hive 4 July Queen Lori

Queen Lori, 

It was fun making these Great Pumpkin blocks for you!  It put me in a happy mood.  It has been over a month, it seems, since I have gotten to work on any projects.  So, this was a nice segue, a good way to spend a hot and humid Sunday afternoon.  I hope they work for you.  Will post in the mail tomorrow.


Hive 7 July

Love this block. I've had it made for a while but it got buried under other stuff  I was working on.  Will send out today

Hive 3 Block for July

Block for July

What a lovely colour combo, my first block for the bee, three years ago used this colour combo, just love it!
Had a great time pulling these colours together, had more blues than orange so went with the blue option.
Love the way the block turned out, except for the pearl bracelets that aren't straight and creates the illusion the whole block is off . 

Its in the mail !

Blocks for Marie

Hi Marie!
My blocks went in the mail to you yesterday morning. I hope the fabric selections are what you were looking for. I made more HSTs than I needed for your blocks, so I sent along the extras. I thought it was better for you to mix them in with yours than to have blocks with the same fabrics in them. 
Stay cool!

Hive 4 Block for Lori

Enjoying the dog days of summer while sewing these cuties together.  Reminds me that fall is just around the corner.  Am I the only one who thinks summer goes by too quickly?  Thank you, Lori.  I really enjoyed making these blocks, and it gave me an opportunity to add orange strings to my string stash.  I am about to start my first ever string quilt and discovered I had NO orange in the box.
