Circles of Geese for Heather

Heather sent Hive 2 out with a bang with her selection of the Circle of Geese block! Paper piecing isn't usually my thing, but I enjoyed putting these blocks together. It was fun to raid my stash for 12 prints of the same color.

I dropped this in the mail today. It's been a wonderful year and I can't wait to see everyone's finished quilts.


Hive 7, November

I have had a wonderful time with Hive 7 this year. These blocks are lots of fun.

Judy's Trees

Thanks Judy!  Your tree blocks are easy, fun, and CUTE!  Just the kind of sewing I was looking for during a busy time of year.  I hope your forest quilt comes together the way you want it.  I'm loving seeing people's finished Stash Bee quilts already, although mine is still a UFO.

Hive 2 - November Flying Geese for Heather

I just learned how to do paperless paper piecing without sewing through the paper so that you can reuse your pattern and there is no tearing pieces of paper out of the seam. You can find a tutorial for this method at paperless paper piecing This was the perfect pattern to use this method. Heather gave us several color choices. So I picked yellow. This will be going out in the mail this weekend.  Can't wait to see a completed quilt.

November Hive 7

Frieda wants to make a scrappy cross quilt.  I have a gigantic pile of scraps - seriously -  and I loved making this block so I kept going.  4 was as easy as 1!  Hope you like them!

I hope you are at the meeting on Saturday - I will bring them!

Hive 1 November Block for Diane

Diane chose a great block for our hive to end the year.  Her quilt will be wonderfully colorful, and I can't wait to see all her blocks together.

Thanks to everyone in Hive 1 for such a fun year, and especially to Diana for keeping us all organized!  I've loved participating in Stash Bee, and getting to know all of you a bit in the process.

Diane--your block will be in the mail tomorrow!

Hive 1 November Block for Diane

I'm so glad Diane took a picture of the blocks I sent and posted below because I deleted my pictures after mailing! Oops! I took a screenshot of my instagram pics but the pics Diane took look better.  This one was super fun, I could see it being a great block to do a super modern black and white  or something like that.....Thanks so much for this one, Diane! - Greta b
