Crashing Hive 4

As someone who tends to save every usable scrap I love this block.  Enjoy Stephanie.

Hive 9 Block for Tanyia

Mailed late last week and should arrive soon.

Hive 6 for Emily

Hive 6 tree for Emily.  I have not done any improve quilting designs so this tree is a start. If you came to my part of Canada I would first take you to the three quilt stores in my immediate area.  Then we would go on a hike on Mount Dufferin, that has trails winding through the ponderosa pines, sagebrush and bunch grass.  At the top we can see most of the city and the surrounding mountains.  Even in winter it is doable. Put on your hikers !!
This tree in the mail to you today. 

Paint Chips for Laura

I'm excited to be joining up with Stash Bee again this year -- Laura is our Hive mama and January queen so when she asked for Paint Chip blocks it was a great pull from the scraps. 

I made her a completed Yellow block

I also sent along the colored part to make another 2 blocks but I'm lacking in neutrals right now so I am sure she won't mind chopping these up and adding them into her collection.

January Hive 4 Block for Stephanie

This is my first year in Stash Bee and I am so happy to be part of such a friendly hive. To kick it off right our Hive Mama made a great choice. 

Here is my version of Stephanie's selected scrappy block! I love the block she has selected. Thankfully, I have a healthy scrap bin to select from!

Hive 9 block for Tanyia

This is my first year as a participant in the Stash Bee.  I love the color palette that Tanyia selected.  How cute that she selected house blocks since she just moved?  My block is really scrappy and all but two fabrics came from my scrap bin!  The block will be in the mail Tuesday since Monday is a holiday.  I am a terrible photographer and my block was pinned to my wall askew.  Sorry for the poor quality.

Crashing Hive 1, Hive 3 and Hive 8

Hello Diana, Tracy and Abigail,

Since I didn't have to make a block this month I thought I would crash a few hives.

First was Hive 1, who could resist such an easy and quick block. Not to mention I love purple! Hope this helps.

Next was Hive 3.  Loved making the bear paw and it went faster than I thought.  I thought it would be more fun making 4 different ones and give Tracy a bigger variety. Also, it was fun using that great Octopus from Heather Bailey's new line and love the way he looks. 

Finally, I had to make one for Hive 8, I had picked that block the first time I was in Stash Bee and it turned out to be one of my favorite quilts I have.  I keep it across my chair in the family room. In addition, I made a block for Abigail last year and saw it in her picture in her tutorial, so another one is on its way to her.

Well I am looking forward to next month and all the new blocks.  I would love to be able to crash a few more hives but I will have to see how the month goes. 


Hive 4 block for January

This was an excellent scrappy block!  I already had several 2.5" squares cut out from a recent project, and then I dug through my other scrap bins for the rest.  Leftover pieces from the single jelly roll that I've ever purchased showed up often too.

Hive 7 for Laura

I was happy to start off the new year with a bright, cheerful block that combined by favourite things--text fabric and blue scraps! It's a good antidote to the endless snow.  It's fun to see what everyone else has made too.


Crashing Hive 8 - Scrappy Kisses and Crosses

It was an adventure finding bright scraps for Abigail's Kisses and Crosses January block. 
Thanks Abigail for picking such a fun block.
