Katrin who blogs at Puppilalla is the Hive Queen this month and she asked us to make the most awesome block. It's pretty simple although she added a tricky bit to the middle. Here's my version of her block. I'm definitely putting this block in the block of the month idea file for my local guild.
Katrin sent us the background fabric and choose a rich palette of warm patterned fabrics for the feature fabrics. Imagine a whole quilt made of such rich beautiful fabrics. It's going to be amazing, and I'm looking forward to seeing its completion. Katrin is participating in the New Bloggers blog hop this year and I'm looking forward to reading her post on Wednesday July 13th.
Speaking of which, are you following the New Bloggers Blog Hop this year. You can find the details at Yvonne's blog Quilting Jet Girl, or Cheryl's blog Meadow Mist Designs, or Stephanie,s blog Late Night Quilter.
I decided to crash Hive 9 this month. Martina, the Queen for Hive 9 chose an improv house block and I couldn't resist these cute little houses. When I was cutting my fabrics for the Rainbow Rose Quilt Along (you can see my blog post here) I thought some of the fabrics would look great in the house blocks so lickity split, I made them up.
I like these blocks so much I just might have to make a set for myself....and I'm sure to suggest them as a block of the month...maybe for both of the guilds I'm in. I think traditional and modern quilters would have a blast making these blocks.I'm linking up this post for Lets Bee Social at Lorna's blog Sew Fresh Quilts.
