Description

November - Jo requested a Star crossed block, with a low volume background and bold bright fabric for the other two parts. I chose to do mine in orange and turquoise as I felt these were both bright and contrasted nicely. 

January - Melissa has requested a churn dash block in the following colours -raspberry/maroon, pink, chocolate brown, golden yellow, tangerine orange. The centre piece she requested if possible a fussy cut, and the background fabric was to read white or cream. She also requested a siggy block. Once I had chosen the fabric it went pretty quickly.

February - Valerie has requested a sailboat block, with white or white on white background and the boats and sails in low volume blues and greys. The tutorial is from http://delawarequilts.com/BOMs/SailingShips/index.html . She has also requested a siggy block using the same tutorial as Melissa gave us. 

March - Sue is our Queen for March and she has requested a scrap jar star block in bright clear colours with no browns or blacks. Background fabric is a true white. The tutorial is from a little bit biased -http://alittlebitbiased.blogspot.co.uk/2012/01/scrap-jar-stars-tutoroial-giveaway.html She has also requested a siggy block using the same tutorial that Melissa gave us. Was a fairly easy block to do and as we were going for a scrappy look I had extra 1/2 square triangles so made 2 blocks.

April - Jordan is Queen for April and she requested a Star Flower Block for her month. Tutorial can be found here - http://ellisonlane.com/2011/04/starflower-block-tutorial.html 
She requested Kona Snow for the background fabric and that the colours followed the progression of red, pink, orange, yellow, green, light blue, dark blue and purple. She also requested a siggy block found here http://www.thatgirlthatquilt.com/2010/05/signature-blocks-tutorial.html with the centre in the Kona Snow and one of the fabric we had used in the block for the outside.

May - Michelle is our Queen for May and she requested a granny square for her block. All colours were our choice. They could be solids or patterns. I have made this block a few times before for a previous hive so it didn't take much time at all. 

June - This is my month. I have chosen a disappearing nine patch with a twist. All details in my studio

July - Victoria is our Queen for July and she chose the Economy Block. The tutorial was from Red Pepper Quilts - http://www.redpepperquilts.com/2013/08/economy-block-quilt-in-progress-tutorial.html , and we could choose any colours as she wanted cute, fussy cut in the centre with vintage-y dots, checks, patterns or florals around it. Hopefully this fits the criteria.

August _ Claire is our Queen for August and she chose a maple leaf block. Low volume background and fall colours (orange, mustard, olive, chartreuse, brown, yellow, green) for the leaves. These could be scrappy or all the same. I chose to do mine all the same and used the tutorial from allpatchedup found here:   http://allpatchedupblog.blogspot.co.uk/2013/01/maple-leaf-block-tutorial.html
