This month’s queen in my Stash Beehive is Ophelie (@quiltoph). She picked the Treasure Hunt block from Blossom Heart Quilts. Ophelie added colour dots to the template (her version here) and that made it extra easy to keep track of what colours went where. I’m a bit of a convert to mustard after making this block. Ophelie’s original request post with her colour choices is here. I was hoping for my prints to offer more variety in the way they matched up but it didn’t come together as I planned and I have a far less scrappy effect than I was hoping for.
Kate at Smiles from Kate is queen over in Bee Inspired for March and she’s chosen the Gnomes and Trees block from Flying Parrots Quilts for her block. I spent a “too hot for housework” Sunday afternoon putting the trees and gnomes blocks together. It was a fun block to make, and great for a bee pick! The hot weather was followed by thunderstorms and I have learned a lesson in low light photography. This block is nowhere near as yellow as it appears.
I’m currently working on a quilt using some large scale hourglass blocks. It’s working title is “Dave, the Engineering Quilt”, a play on Dave the Quilt Engineer (husband of quilting buddy, Tish) because of the blueprint drawings on the fabric. When the idea came I thought it was hilarious. Still do.
The blocks from being queen in Bee Inspired last month continue to roll in. It’s such fun! These are from Sharon at Yellow Cat Quilt DesignsJen at A Dream and a QuiltPaige at Quilted Blooms, Ann at Brown Paws QuiltingSmiles from Kate, and Karen at Tu-Na Quilts, Travels and Eats.
