Description

Here is my block for Hive 3 March block. This was a tough one for me. I ended up making a total of 5 blocks before I got it to be 12.5 inches; 2 came out 12.25 inches, grrr. Yup, even checked my 1/4 seam before starting. One came out 12 inches, I have no idea why and one is 11.25 inches. I like the block itself but not sure how I feel about the flying geese blocks. Off to April and hope to get it done sooner.
04/01/13 I decided to make another block last night because I just wasn't happy with the other ones. I like this one so much better and it is right on size. Hurray. Going to send a few of them so Craftybee can decide which one she wants to use.

I love the red paisley print. It works really well with the navy dots. I always have trouble getting my blocks to size for some reason. I even use a 1/4" foot on my machine but they still come out wrong most of the time unamused

Joke Thanks I also used a 1/4 inch foot for 3 of them but still not right. I am a "dot" person so I usually have some fabric with some kind of dots in most things I made.
