For Carolyn and Christina!

Carolyn-this quilt block has been on my "want to try" list for quite some time now.  Thanks for the opportunity to do it - I truly loved it.  I also love the fabrics you sent...it's great how they all end up going together even though they don't look like they would.  I cannot wait to see your blocks come together (side note/thought: anyone complete their projects from last year's bee blocks?  Would love to see pictures!).  I went to the post office today, but didn't send your block - the line was a mile long and only one clerk working and because it's going to Canada I can't use the auto ship thing to send it..will try again hoping for a smaller line!

Christina-this was my first time doing a disappearing 9-patch as well.  It was so quick and fun to figure out how I wanted to rearrange it!  I also look forward to seeing your blocks come together, it will be fun to see how everyone chose to lay them out!  Your block should be arriving by the weekend!

February block for Christina

This is the second 12 1/2" block I have cut and resewn to supposedly get a 12 1/2 " block. That does not compute in my brain. DH says do as you were told and stop feening about the math. So I did!
I really like this block!

Carolyn and Christina's Blocks!

LOL, I have to smile because both these blocks were easy and challenging.  I love how they both turned out.

Carolyn, you asked not for us to square it down, so I haven't - wasn't sure if you wanted a 12 1/2" block:
And Christina, I love the whooville red you gave me to use:

Both will go into the mail Monday!

Block for Carolyn

Your block gave me fits because it was so easy it was difficult. Mathematically it didn't make sense to me at all which probably my major problem. But thank you for this block b/c it tested my skills...especially cutting skills. I hope that you can use it in your quilt.

Answer for Carolyn's block

Sorry guys I am renovating and not sewing or blogging.
To answer your question, please use 6 strips on each side to cover the entire orange piece.
If your block is already done and you only used five, that is fine, I can add to them when they get here.
I thought I had included this on the instructions, but it must have been a good dream!
Thanks everyone,

Carolyn's Block Question

I finished your block today. I messed it up at first. I did not adjust my 1/4" seam. After redoing it my block only measures 12". I have tried to see what size yours is in your picture but I can't really tell. It looks like it is only 12" as well. Please help. Thank you, Shannon

Sneak peek for Marta and Staci

Would you believe I packaged and mailed them before I realized I never photographed them?!!  Im not even sure where my camera is at the moment.  Still trying to get back to normal after holiday craziness.  Of course going back to work tomorrow should shock my system.  Oops I better turn the alarm back on.  I just want to say thanks to Linda and everyone in Hive A.  This has been a great year!  I decided not to continue in 2012 as I need to focus on the UFOs in my trunk.  Here is a picture of almost all of the blocks I received from this group ( I forgot to put up the last one received).  I  still didn't receive one but cant seem to figure out whose.

Ok found a picture of the tenth one.
I love how everyone rocked the wonky stars in such different ways.

My block collection!

I am SOO loving how these are going to go together!  I have received 6 blocks since November (though mine was suppose to be in October) and missing 5.  Doesn't this remind you of the ocean?

Happy New Year!!!  I can't wait for my next little block package!!
