Those of you who stop by regularly will know that for the past year or so I’ve been taking part in the Stitch Tease bee – a top secret bee that is a little different from your average bee.
My co-bee-ers are a talented bunch…you probably already know some of them: Annabella from Life’s Rich Pattern, Susan from Canadian Abroad, Hadley from Flying Blind on a Rocket Cycle, Di from Quiltova, Danny from Mommy for Reals, Katy from The Littlest Thistle Craft Shop and last but not least the queen bee Di from Random Thoughts Do or Di. You might want to take a look over at their blogs today as they will be showing their quilts too.
This bee started with each of us making a couple of large blocks or a strip and telling the others what we wanted.
I started off with this…
Wonky stars on a base of kona ash
And this is what came home to mama last week….and all I can say is that my photos aren’t great and this is way more beautiful in person!
Isn’t it amazing…..I LURVE IT!!!
Now I’m supposed to show you photos of all the blocks I made, but due to my chaotic and non-existant photo filing system these were all I could find…..it’s even possible that I didn’t make photos of the rest…which is a really poor show, but if you check out the other blogs you will see how wild and crazy some of the quilts turned out!
Here’s what I have anyway!
And here’s Danny’s quilt, which I sewed together (I made the wonky star stripe in the middle!)
This has been a great bee..the best, really! Great people, huge amounts of talent, people kept to deadlines and we have really got to know each other (that’s the VERY best bit). I met Katy, Susan, Hadley and Quiltova Di at FQR and this year Queen Bee Di will be there too…now I just have to chase down Danny and Annabella!
Round Two is about to start and I can’t wait!!
