Hive 5 - June Blocks

Patti asked for X and + blocks for June which I've always thought are such fun blocks.  The only problem is she asked for large floral prints a la Anna Maria Horner or Amy Butler to be used for the feature fabrics of the Xs.  I have pretty much zero in my stash from either Anna Maria Horner or Amy Butler and florals are pretty sparse as well.  I dug pretty deep and hopefully these florals are in line with what you are looking for, Patti!

Here are my finished blocks!

I'll be heading to the post office with these soon!

Hive 1 June Block for Alanna

Alanna asked everyone for flying geese in shades of green, gray, and white.  These were fun to put together (I appreciated the chance to practice geese points...), and I loved the soothing color palette.  It'll be a beautiful quilt!

Alanna--your blocks will be in the mail tomorrow.

June block for Paulette

This was such an easy block.  Why did I wait so long to make it?  I hope you like this one Paulette.  I think your quilt is going to look awesome!!  It is going into the mail today.

Pineapple Blocks for Alison (Hive 4)

I had so much fun making this super simple block for Alison. My life is all kinds of crazy right now so I was pleased to be able to knock this block out quickly.

I actually finished it quickly and hung it up for a pic and got so busy I forgot all about it until I got an email reminding me that I hadn't posted or mailed my block. OOPS!!

Which leads me to today....

I can't wait to see the finished quilt....I know Alison has been collecting these blocks for a while. This is going to be a stunner and I feel fortunate to be a part of it. 

June - Hive 9 - Block for Betsy

I am way late posting this. The block has been sent and received, but I keep forgetting to post it here. Betsy picked a string block in red, white and blue. Who doesn't love a patriotic quilt. I pulled fabrics and that was probably the most time consuming part of this block. It went together very quickly. I keep saying I want to do a string quilt for myself, but that is just one of countless quilts I want to do.

I stole the photo Betsy posted on Facebook, because I can't find the one I took of the block before I mailed it. All of the blocks I've seen so far look great, I can't wait to see her quilt when it is done. So far I've enjoyed making every black this year and I can't wait to see what comes next.

Hive 5 for Patti

We are over half way through bees!  Patti's block was just as described - took longer to cut than sew.  However, it was a fun block to put together!

And what fun colors!  I hope everyone is well!

Block for Hive 9

Hi Betsy, I'm a Stash Bee Angel from Hive 5, buzzing in to let you know that I will be putting this block in the mail for you on Monday. Since I live in Florida too, it shouldn't take long to get to you., Enjoy! (It actually is square, it's just the pic that's wonky.)

June Hive 7

Sorry that it took so long to make.  I wanted to make early especially as it was going to New Zealand.  This month was so busy as my youngest son graduated from High School.  I hope you get them soon.

Hive 5 Blocks

Hive 5 June blocks for Patti.  It did take longer to cut everything out than to make the block.  My stash doesn't have much it the way of florals so hope the work for you Patti.  They are going in the mail today.

Hive 2 June Block

Hi Lisa glad you're able to join our group. Block will be in mail tomorrow.
