Description

Hard to believe we are starting our second year of this bee!

February 2015 - Susannah Quilt block. Tutorial here. This was Carol's choice and she requested teal and olive with Kona white. A fun, quick and easy block to make

March 2015 - Miss Molly's Garden - pattern here. Margaret's choice. Black background, green leaves, yellow center and our choice of flower color. 

April 2015 - Wonky star block - tutorial here. Karen asked that we think "crayon box" and she provided the center square for everyone

May was my month - separate project page was created for that

June 2015 - Modern Geese block - tutorial here. Wendy asked for low volume on one side and gray tone on tone or something similar on the other side of bright fabrics. 

July 2015 - Wonky house for Belinda - I used The Sewing Chick's tutorial. Decided to let my nerdy side show (what a surprise), and also went with Hawkeye Black & Gold/Yellow. Turns out Karen and I used the same background fabric - great minds an all that

August 2015 - Northeast Block for Marsha - based initially on a tutorial she wrote and then it was adapted to a paper pieced pattern to ensure standard sizing. She requested grays and gradients of a main color. I again went with yellow since I had lots of  yellows out from my butterfly block. I also angeled a block for Mary since she's recovering from surgery. Teal is a special color for Mary so I had "her" block teals and grays.

Gorgeous greens and blues!!!! I love these bright colors, HawkFan . I hope my "olives" are going to be acceptable. Sweet block, Ms. Carol.

HawkFan

Quilterinmotion Thanks Marsha. Other "olives" look quite different from mine so there is definitely a range

Quilterinmotion

Readerowl

Nice wonky star!

HawkFan

Readerowl Karen I'm glad you like it. I enjoy wonky but my brain wasn't working well today. I'm glad each 5-inch square made two triangles since I goofed a couple up

HawkFan

Carolmarie Thanks Carol. Such a fun quilt idea!

True

Great wonky star!!!

HawkFan

True Thanks Mary.

Readerowl

Love your colors in the June blocks.

HawkFan

Readerowl Thanks Karen. I definitely need to make a pink/gray/black/white quilt!

Caribousmom

TOTALLY love the blocks you made for me, Audrey!!!! Can't go wrong with pink and orange...and you know, Paula's favorite color was pink and mine is orange so even more perfect ;)

HawkFan

Caribousmom That's why I chose the colors I did. I'm so glad you like them.

True

Absolutely love your June blocks!!!

HawkFan

True Thanks Mary! Lots of nice comments on Insta too

Quilt455

Totally love it. I wanted to use pink but just did not have the right colors. You picked great ones.

HawkFan

Quilt455 thanks Cathie. I've been collecting pinks for a quilt. Glad for an excuse to use them smile

True

Awesome wonky house hoping to do mine this weekend!!

HawkFan

True Thanks Mary. I had forgotten how fun these were to do.

ArloDeanQuilts

Love the wonky house!

HawkFan

ArloDeanQuilts Glad you like it and hope you don't mind that Karen & I have the same background. Totally unplanned!

Mymble

Love your blocks for Wendy and your wonky house is super!!!

HawkFan

Mymble Thanks Margaret!

Conniharns

Hawkfan. What an adorable house of equations!! I love it. Great fabric.

HawkFan

Conniharns Thanks Miss Conni. Definitely fits my personality!

Conniharns

HawkFan Nice August blocks! Very pretty and was so nice of you to "angel" Mary's block for her.

baronreads

HawkFan Nice blocks! And so ahead of the game!! ;)

HawkFan

Conniharns thank you Conni. I didn't want True worrying about getting this done. This way she keeps her record of getting her block done early wink

HawkFan

Thanks baronreads my August plans are a bit up in the air so I'm trying to get things done now.

True

Thank you so much and both blocks are just gorgeous! And I appreciate you protecting my reputation as I like to keep "all" of them intact at all times;-). You rock

HawkFan

True my pleasure!

Terryt1955

Both blocks are wonderful! And so glad you're looking out for True reputation! Don't you just love it when you can take advantage of fabric that you just used for another project eliminating the need to go fabric diving?

HawkFan

Terryt1955 Thanks Terry. Yes, I was able to put them together so much faster since I was only pulling the grays.
