Stash Bee 2016 Hive 8 - March Block

This month's block was easy to put together, but it took a while to settle on the fabrics to use.  She asked for Kelly green, or mint green, or navy blue.  Turned out, I had Kelly green in my stash so that is what I used.

To test the procedure, I first made a block with neutral background and fabric with dots.  I followed her directions except I had smaller pieces of fabric so did not have four of all the fabrics.

Even though I tried to mixed things up, it's interesting that the pink and brown stayed together - and they even ended up being next to the center square.

I think her quilt should end up being very pretty.  I've lost count on how many mint, Kelly or navy blocks she is getting but seemed she has a few of each of the colors.


  1. That's a nice block for Amanda...I think she mostly has navy and mint so she'll be happy for the kelly green. I really like the other version you made as well.

    1. Thanks Lisa!

      It's good she gave us three choices, more likely to have fabrics in our stash already that way!

      I am hoping the dotted fabric blocks will combine nicely at the end of the year. I used to do Block Lotto blocks but always sent them off. I'm wishing I had made one in the same fabrics like I'm doing this year for Stash Bee.

      Thank you for your note and for coming by!
