HIVE #3 FIRST BLOCK

The title is "a bit" of a give away for what I am going to tell you about today.... BUT FIRST ....

I take it from the comments that you are AS SICK of the migraine inducing background as I am!! lol WELL its March tomorrow ...so it will be gone! ...

You will remember the colour for March is YELLOW.... wonder what I will find for that ?

NOW you may have noticed the button/thingy on the sidebar for the Stash Bee Swap .... I am in Hive #3 which starts in March with Debbie's block.

BY THE WAY Hive #4 is signing up so if you want to get involved click the button and it will take you to the link xx

Debbie posted her block yesterday... I read it....Panicked.... put a paper bag over my head, pulled up my big girl pants .... and started asking questions!!

THEN today I sorted out some fabric...


NOTICE she wants GREEN ... my kinda girl xx...and set to work. I made a block THEN wondered if she wanted the LIGHT on the inside OR the outside... so I made another one..


THEN I measured them... she is expecting 6.25... mine are SMALL ... so I made 2 more... RIGHT size (phew)...



SO what am I going to do with the other 2 ... well I am to make a signature block... one of those will do!!... and I can practice the applique "bit"...


THEN I put on the applique onto the "proper" blocks...


NOW I start to wonder... will she like my choice of colours? Too Late they are DONE .... what do I do with the other small block?... Heck she can have it!! x


SO all 4 are going in the post xx




SEE Hives are fun.. want to join in? Punch that button/thingy lol x

Keep smiling

My block came out to 6" square. How did you get it to come out to 6 1/4 "? What am I doing wrong? I just cut two more triangles and they measure 6 1/2 " side by side, so I know once I sew my 1/4" seam it will also be to small. Ugh!
