It’s getting near the end of the month and I needed to hustle and get my Stash Bee block finished for the month of June. Alison is our Queen this month and she chose Pineapple Blocks. Alison was the Hive Mama for Hive 1 last year which I was part of. Last year she also had us make Pineapple Blocks. So with 2 years of Pineapple Blocks this should be a good sized quilt. You can find her tutorial on the Stash Bee site if you want to make a Pineapple Block.
In other news from the Stash Bee, I finally finished my 2016 quilt from when I was part of Hive 1. This quilt was inspired by a friend who give me a quilt kit that she decided she didn’t want to make. The kit was full of traditional fabrics in blues and yellow with a very simple beginning quilter pattern. I told my friend I would take the kit and make a quilt for her but I would most likely not use the pattern. She agreed with the condition that she is going to donate the quilt to a worthy charity. When I signed up for the Stash Bee last year I decided to use the Tic Tac Toe pattern and I thought this would be a great way to get more blocks to make a larger quilt. It certainly turned into a bright, cheery, and not so traditional quilt that should make someone smile. Of course, little Katrina wanted in on the photo shoot.
