2nd quarter 2015 Bee Blocks

I am a member of the Stash Bee, Hive 3.  Even with the craziness of moving, I have managed to finish my blocks – but was a little slow on proving that to the internet 🙂

April was my month to receive blocks, so I requested red-tan-brown-low volume blocks to help me get enough blocks to finally finish up my “Real World Red & White” quilt.  I think I finally have enough!  Thank you ladies!

I also took part in a very unofficial block trade. Aby made this lovely block for my red & white quilt.

And I made this block for a quilt being made for Aby. The request was for bright colors that read as solids with a white background. I played around and made this.  The quilt was actually finished before I managed to post about the block, and you can see it here.

This next block is my May block for Jennifer.  Her tutorial is here.  I’m excited to see this quilt.  I think it’s going to look fantastic!

June’s block was for Sylvia at Flying Parrot Quilts.  She started her Christmas quilt early enough to actually finish it in time for Christmas!  Great idea Sylvia – I should follow suit, so my WiP Christmas quilt doesn’t stay in a box for another year!  The tutorial for her block is here.

  1. How fun to get such a collection of such different blocks. They look great together. And I love the Christmas trees and gnomes! That is such a fun block. I can just imagine the fun of pulling out a Christmas Tree and Gnome quilt every year at the beginning of the Christmas season.

  2. Love the blocks you have for your Real World Red and White quilt. Those tree blocks are lots of fun. You did finish a lot to be in the middle of a move. Congrats.

  3. I am not usually a sucker for Christmas quilts (too hot here) but I love those gnome/tree blocks. There is something whimsical about them. Jennifer chose great colours, so I expect that will be a stunner as well.
    I am glad to see that your red and white and tan quilt is going strong. Nice block by Aby!
