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.
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
