Description

Hi there!  I am so excited to finally be recognized as Queen!!  Ta da!!!  I have gone round and round and changed my mind several times as to what I wanted for my block.  I finally settled on the Hashtag Block.  It is soooo easy.  I wrote a tutorial for it on my blog.

Here are the guidelines:  Please use a small red and white print.  Fabric should have red and white only, no other colors.  For the white I used Kona White and if you have that I'd love if you would use it but any pure white will be great.  This block is 10.5 x 10.5.

That's it, really.  Easy peasy.  This is such a fun bee and I so enjoy being a part of it.  Thanks in advance for all your hard work worker bees!

6/21/13 - I have received all my blocks and I love them.  I'm gong to put white sashing between the blocks.  I need a few more but I'm in another hive so I may do this same one again.  Thanks so much Bees!!!

This looks very pretty. I'll look at my stash after I have a cup of tea.

Just to clarify....Kona White is not the same as Kona Snow....correct? Your are wanting a more pure white.

Slicksister

Sewbusy64 Correct! A pure white white is what I'm after.

Capetowngirl

Glad you asked that question, as I thought they were the same. Have ordered some Kona white now.

Looks like a good one! Can't wait to get started.

Great block. I have been eager to use red and white.

Drnic2c

I read over the tutorial. Just want to confirm the size of the 6 red blocks. Should they be 2" x 2.5" or 2.5" x 2.5"?

Slicksister

Drnic2c Did I mess up the tutorial? I better go check. Meanwhile...the 6 red blocks are 2.5" x 2.5"

This looks like fun! Thanks for the great tutorial, Slicksister . I may have to make more than one of these!

Slicksister

Ok, I fixed it. Thanks Drnic2c+

Slicksister

Terrysim And if a couple of those made it to my house... well.... you know they'd have a good home! LOL

Love the block...should be a great top!

Please be sure that you go over and add an info post to the group forum tho. I know there are many over there waiting to see what their block is for this month....they may not find your project page! ;)

Hey there.....how are all of those red & white blocks looking together. Can't wait to see pics!!

Slicksister

They look fabulous. I've been drowning in rehearsals but the show opens tomorrow night so after that I will have more time on my hands and I will be sure to take some pictures for ya'll.

True

This is going to be a gorgeous quilt...love all the different red fabrics!

Sewbusy64

YEAHH!! love it

What kind of show were you rehearsing for? I hadn't seen you on here for Awhile and was hoping nothing bad had happened. I guess there is life outside of quilting! The top is going to be fabulous and especially with the white sashing!

Chandra

I love red and white!

Missriain

They look so fabulous all together!! Love!

Terryt1955 I am the Stage Manager for Singin' In The Rain. We had to replace our "Don Lockwood" 10 days before we opened so it was a bit crazy.

Terryt1955

Well that must have been stressful for both you and the new Don! How did opening night go?

Slicksister

Opening night was fabulous! We have an amazing cast and crew. We are on our second weekend now. Then we have 2 more most of which are all sold out! THEN I'll have my life back with no shows for awhile.

Fun, fun, fun! Love this one too. I'm glad you commented on my latest quilt so I could find you :)
