Carla @Granny Maud’s Girl introduced me to the concept of “gate crashing” during last year’s Stash Bee. The concept is simple: make a block for someone in another hive and ship it to them when it is their month as Queen Bee. This was especially easy to accomplish in January, as I am Queen Bee for Hive 9 and not making a block for anyone in my own hive.
Alison from Hive 1 requested these very cute and fun pineapple blocks. They sew together quickly, and I just couldn’t resist giving it a try.
Diana from Hive 3 put together a lovely wreath block tutorial. I am so glad she also said that red would work for her, because I actually had a few holiday / Christmas prints in red (but none in green)!
Audry of Hive 5 requested a five crosses block. I love the colors she selected for this block, and it also tugged at my heart that the quilt will be going to a friend going through hard times.
I look forward to seeing how all these quilts come together, and it was a lot of fun to spend a part of my Saturday sewing for others.
