Hive 1 April Block for T

T asked for a constellation of stars from our hive this month, but gave everyone their choice of star.  I debated between paper piecing and traditional piecing, but in the end my printer decided for me when it ran out of ink...  So I picked the Double Sawtooth Star (and slightly modified my approach based on the instructions here) with orange, gold, and blue.

T--I'm looking forward to seeing all of your stars together!  I'll be putting this one in the mail tomorrow.

Hive 1 Block for T: April 2017

I adore star blocks so I was really excited by T telling us to pick our own star blocks.  I made two blocks.

The first block is a paper pieced block called Lone Starbust from the Six White Horses blog. I've been wanting to make this for a while and this was the perfect excuse.  The fabric in the center has unbalanced stripes & I decided to go with it and didn't worry about matching the stripes.

While trimming the block I nicked into the seam allowance.  So I made a second block. It's Wombat Quilt's Starry Night paper pieced block. I really like that center star has an orange outline.

Here are the two blocks together.  I hope you like them.

Hive 6 block for Irene

What a lovely block Irene.  My photo looks a little darker than the fabrics really are.  I look forward to seeing your quilt.  Took me longer to find and cut the pieces than to sew them all together.  Enjoy. I will be mailing it tomorrow. 

April Hive 5 for Beth

Whew, April is flying by!

I was skeptical about these blocks - I didn't think that I would like making them.  I was wrong!  How fun, easy to put together, and how cool looking!

Thanks Beth!!

Hive 7, April

This was such an easy month.  Sorry it took me so long.

Hive 9 - April block for Sherry

Hi Sherry!
Here's the block I finished for you. I have all the blocks cut for a second block and hope to put it together tonight so I can send you two! They should be out in the mail to you by the end of the week.
Looking forward to seeing the quilt you put together for your beautiful daughter!

Hive 2 Bird for Brenda

Well I procrastinated long enough... Wednesday I had Cheryl help me tackle this paper pieced bird and got it done!  Once I got going it wasn't too bad and I am pleased with the outcome. So it off in the mail today. I can't wait to see all these bird together that have appeared, it should look really nice.

I also crashed Hive 7 for Pam and have 20 HST to send you.  I love the quilt that you are going to make from all the triangles. Hope to see it finished.

Until May,
