My January 2022 One Monthly Goal was to finish my Treasure Hunt Bee Hive block quilt top. Please see my Jan 2022 OMG post for more details about these blocks. Sewing these blocks together into a quilt top didn’t go quite as smoothly as I had hoped. Some hive members used too big of a stitch length, and when I ripped out the paper, parts of seams had to be re-sewed. One member used the wrong size paper template, so unfortunately I was not able to use her 8 blocks for this project. My biggest puzzlement was why some of the blocks I received had corners clipped that necessitated me ironing on squares of fusible interfacing, so the seams could be sewn to the end. Perhaps the rectangles used for the strip piecing were cut with a die?
The majority of the blocks were nicely made using a pleasing assortment of fabrics, and overall, I’m happy with how the quilt top looks and believe it will make a nice donation quilt when it is finished.
