Description

May 2013: Queen: Sewbusy,  The Churn and Dash Block. Materials: Kona Snow and a Teal fat quarter. This was my first Churn and Dash block it was a fun block to make.

June 2013: Queen: angmarie, Flying Geese Block. Materials: Red stripe fat quarter and swirly blue fat quarter. I have done flying geese before but it was nice to make some in the bigger size for a change.

July 2013: Queen: sareew, Christmas Tree Block. Materials: Mixed green scrap fabrics for tree and brown for trunk. Kona snow border. Red white fat quarter. This block was intimidating to me at first so I put it off for awhile, but once I got it started it went together very easy. I loved this block and found myself wanting to keep it.
 
August 2013: Queen: IheartDL, Moda Charming Stars Block. Materials: 5" rainbow colored squares and solid white fabrics. I loved picking fabrics for this project. I can see a Moda Charming Stars quilts for myself in my near future.

September 2013: Queen: libellenart, Converging Corners Block. Materials: Kona White, Pirate Map, Red with gold swirl and black texture fabric. I do not normally do improv type blocks but I was happy with the outcome of this block, hope the Queen likes it.

October 2013: Queen: emptysea, Patchwork Wheel Block: http://www.dontcallmebetsy.com/2012/03/patchwork-wheel-block-tutorial.html.  Kona white and mixed rainbow prints and a few solids.

November 2013: Queen: beadqueen, Ribbon Star Block. Printed white on white back ground w/fall colors chosen by the queen.

December 2013: Queen: Menolly13, Rocky Mountain Puzzle block. http://mememade.blogspot.com/2013/11/rocky-mountain-puzzle-block.html.  Fussy cut cat block with coordinating purple and aqua fabrics with low volume background.

January 2014: Queen: PurpleIris, Wonky Star block. Warm colored wonky star with Kona white background.

February 2014: Queen: MissRiain, Economy blocks. The queen wanted either monochromatic or analogous(colors next to each other on the color wheel, ex: red, yew, org) colored blocks.

March 2014: I'm Queen.

April 2014: Queen: Slicksister, Scrapy Jar Stars block. The queen wanted bright colors and one fussy cut for the center portion of the block.

the rainbow block arrived yesterday. It's fabulous! I love it! And thank you for including the little scrap triangles. I cannot wait to make this quilt!

ArloDeanQuilts

Oh I'm so glad you like it. I was not sure if you wanted the little triangles sewed together so I left them apart in case you wanted to mix and match with the others in the group.

Menolly13

Nice block! I love the sunny colors and a star block is always my fav!

Quilterinmotion

Great block! I've had this one pinned for a while myself. Stars are always so great, especially when all the points are there. Well done, ArloDeanQuilts .

ArloDeanQuilts

Thank you Jodyrose and Quilterinmotion . I liked this block so much I used it for my month as Queen in another hive.

beadqueene

<3>ll be watching the mailbox :)

Charwirfs

Nice, the tint-on-tone background fabric really pops the color here. BTW I am still scratching my head over what to do with Claire Alex's starter block. You added such great color to it so it should be easy. I have a few choices. Guess I need to pick one and go for it.

beadqueene

I love it even more in person! Thanks Belinda!

Menolly13

I love my block! The kitty fussy cut is adorable! And you even made the HST's for the siggy block! I totally didn't expect that, but it is very much appreciated! Thank you!

ArloDeanQuilts

Menolly13 I really liked making this block! I am going to be putting this on my to do list! I think a quilt out of these blocks would be wonderful. As far as the siggy I thought it might be nice to front and back matching blocks.

Charwirfs

Nice fabric choices in the cat block.
