May bee block.

Hello! I am so excited that May is my month to play along with the bees knees!  I apologize for getting my fabric and instructions out so much later than planned.  Please don't feel rushed.
I have chosen to create a quilt using pretty little quilts going to grandma's quilt pattern.  Growing up, going to my Nanny and Popeye's house was one of my greatest joys.  Becoming a nana myself this past year, I just knew I wanted to commemorate such a special time in my life and this adorable quilt will do just that!

What size quilt block do you want your bee partners to make? (Give finished and unfinished measurements, just to be sure.) pattern sent gives specific measurements

Can your partners use any of their own stash fabric to use in your quilt block? If so, are there any limitations? no thank you, I have sent the fabrics needed for individual blocks

Is there a specific color of thread (white/off white) you want your partners to sew with? white or off white is perfect

Do your partners have to use at least a little bit of every fabric you send or can your partners decide? please use fabrics sent

Do you have a general theme or is it up to your partners to decide? Are there any specific themes that you do NOT want in your quilt block? Likes/dislikes? each block will be a suit case

 
Will you allow any embellishments on the quilt block (i.e. embroidery, raised items such as yo-yos or fabric origami)? no thank you

Can you link us to any flickr or Pinterest photos that you would like us to use as inspiration for your quilt block? picture above

If your partners are super motivated and are able to make two blocks out of the fabric you send. there is just enough for one block


Thank you so much! love, Trish

Another Bee Finish...

I was so excited to get my 2016 Bee quilt back a couple of weeks ago but haven't had the time to get a picture and post it.  That's the problem with photographers...you can never find anyone with a camera. Anyway, here is my first ever Bee quilt and I love it.  My husband has decided that it is now time to make a quilt stand for me!  Yeah!!



I also promised that I would show a picture of Egypt.  Well, maybe my favorite part.  I love the print of the goddess Ma'at. After death, we enter the afterlife carrying our heart to be weighed against a feather from her wing. So she reminds me to keep balance in my life!  Anyway, the decks are clean and ready for my next project and I seriously can't wait to put my next Bee quilt together.
