Just sneaking in this post before June is over. The blocks are currently traveling to their rightful owners! This month I participated in a little hive crashing, like wedding crashing just with blocks! **Not to worry there were no hives damaged in my crashing ;) ** Summer in Hive 6 got some blocks, but also Diana in Hive 4, and Yvonne in Hive 2.
HIVE 6: Summer @ The Easy Quilter
Summer requested a combination of saturated prints, well hello stash meet Summer, you're going to get along just alright! Having difficulty settling on one saturated double star, I compromised at two. Can't hurt to have extras :).
Question: Have you ever participated in a quilt along? Yes, last year I participated in the Sugar BOM club, it was so much fun! I have yet to put all the blocks together, that is on the to do list this summer! I say try it out, usually you gain some friendships and it's nice to post to Instagram and see what others are doing.
HIVE 4: Diana @ Red Delicious Life
I hope Diana is making this quilt for me, teal and grey, it's almost like she knows me too well! We do have similar color tastes, so I am envious that I didn't think of this pattern first!
Question: What do you like to listen to when sewing? The podcasts 'How Stuff Works' or 'Stuff you Missed in History Class'
HIVE 2: Yvonne @ Quilting Jetgirl
Yvonne chose big mail letters, so to be a pain I
made got addicted to making small mail letters. She wasn't counting on my block in her final number so I took some liberties :). Hopefully, she likes them just as much. If not they will be good for the backing! She always sends me nice blog mail/comments, its only nice to return the favor!
Question: What is your favorite season? I love fall in New England. The crisp cool days, the changing of the leaves, the apples (and apple pie), the pumpkins, and going back to school. There is nothing about fall I dislike. Now winter, that's a whole different story ...
Whew, I hope all these ladies enjoy their new blocks. It was fun to branch out and go beyond!
