Well that's the pits that the tutorial wasn't that helpful. I read a similar complaint from someone else in your Hive so you're not alone.
Terryt1955 , I think it works for someone who has had experience quilting and working with blocks. I just thought it didn't have enough direction for a "newbee" with quilting. It could be the teacher in me !
Great block Kathie !
Yes, that tutorial did leave out some things..things that do tend to known by those that have been quilting for a bit. I'll be sure to watch tutorials more closely from here on out and doing up the tutorial myself earlier if needed. Lesson learned! :)
A big issue for me with the first tutorial is that it wasn't very well organized. The information was there, but my ADD brain needs bullet points and photos ;).
It turned out great!
Quilbee Thanks! I hoped you would like it. Grand Finale is a beautiful line (I'm still working on my quilt using it).
Kathie, I think this block looks great. You did a really nice Job on it.
Yes, the quilt block does look great -- and it matches the ones I'll be sending (by Tuesday).
Great tutorial Allpatchedup !. Thanks for posting it Kathie as I probably would have never known about it. What a great quilt this would make for my neighbors from Canada. That would be #20 on my list...
Or if it was done in all different red and white prints on white background it would make an amazing quilt for me! Would that be tacky to use for my month?
With all these bees, there's bound to be some duplicating going on. I don't think it's tacky at all....we had this discussion for one of the other hives already. heh Personally, I'd take it as a compliment. :)
I just LOVE this block with these fabrics...it looks so awesome in person, thank you!
Kathie I did figured you could not access from where you were...and since I had it I knew you sent it;-)
Love your February block Kathie! :)
Allpatchedup Thank you! The picture doesn't really show the colors well but I'm still practicing my photo skills.
that center octopus is so cool!
I love the fussy cut octopus. So cute!
Another great block for April great fabrics!
LOVE the Great Granny Block! The text print is so cute. I am definitely making this one for my month because I want a great granny quilt soooo bad.
I LOVE it! Green is my son's favorite color right now, so the finished quilt is probably going to end up on his bed. :)
Existitchialism I'm so glad you like it ! I just happen to have several different greens because my daughter-in-law likes those colors. It's been fun being able to use my stash lately. I can't wait to see how you put together your son's green quilt!
I love the bold prints you used in July's block.
I love your, soon to be mine, block. I went through all my scraps when making this block. I now have them neatly (for now) organized into size.
I just love the choices you made for Tracy's block!!!! LOVE IT!
Love the July block you just did, I need to add this to my super long things to do list. Great job on all the blocks!
I love that Square in a square block! Thanks for putting the download on your post!
Your August block is beautiful. Love the colors
Pinned your churn dash/nine patch. Love your colors. I'm collecting some churn dash blocks/quilts on Pinterest.
Love this color and fabric combo for this block...lovely
Nice and bright. I really like the small squares in the center.
Your wonky house is so darn adorable!! Love it...
Fantastic job! I love what you have done with your fabrics. You get an A+ for creativity. :)
Wow Kathie - I'm in love with the house (a haunted house would have been great too - we love Halloween at our house). You put so much thought in to this and it's so personalized - that means a lot to me!
HawkFan , I'm so glad you like it! It was a lot of fun and my older daughter says its nice to see that I'm getting creative again. Hmmm . . . I guess I had been slacking off . . .
I know this was outside people's comfort zone so I'm glad it had a positive effect! You got me curious though about what you originally started with...
HawkFan : Blue background (then yellow, then white with butterflies, then beige with dragonflys), no birds/animals except one owl, no tree or fence, all flowers for grass, grey roof the same color as the house but pebbly. I kept switching out fabrics as I finished piecing each section and now there is a mess in my sewing room !
Oops. I guess sometimes art is messy
HawkFan Yes, I think I know which one. . . just wasn't sure when to post AND I need to make my sample.
Wow your wonky house is amazing!
I am in love with this wonky house too!
I love your Wonky House. Just gorgeous
Posted on the Hive2 thread too but I came home from a trip today to find your block in the mail. It really is gorgeous. Thank you so much!!
What a pretty November block.
Love your fabrics and colors in the November block
Love your December block- how clever to use all the different colorways of the same print- so distinctive!
Ohh I love that first block. The different colors of the same print are so fun together! Nice work.
