Remember earlier in the year I posted about joining a Quilting Bee Hive? Well I realised that I hadn’t been back to show you what we have been doing – so grab a cuppa or your drink of preference, put your feet up and come buzzzzzzzzzzz with me!!
I must admit, I have experienced ‘performance anxiety’! It is amazing how, as soon as you start something for someone else, anything that can go wrong, does!! I had to pull those big girl pants up and get serious…..
In October, the first block was the Granny Square
Don’t they look absolutely fantastic!! They are now waiting to be joined and finished! (yes mine is the one that’s missing!)
In March we all had to Swoon
April was the Japanese X
and May was the Card Trick
The Queen Bee, each month, puts forth her request with suggestions re fabric colour etc and we go from there.
I have really enjoyed being a member of the ‘hive’ and am now working on the block for this month – you will have to wait to see that one.
I hope you have enjoyed this little catch-up. Have you ever participated in a ‘Bee’? Did you enjoy the experience? I would love to hear about it!
Until next time

I have never taken part in a Bee. It does look like fun, with a bit of pressure. Those scrappy star blocks are going to look great made into a quilt, Margie!
I have just ‘found’ this Pam so I aplologise – it has been fun Pam and it is only for one block so a great way to try things!

This is my very first Quilting Bee too, and I totally adore it! I also agree with the pressure! I’ve unpicked some of my seams up to 4 or 5 times lol It’s the best experience and I hope our gorgeous little group sign up for a second round 🙂
I apologise to you too Kate as I am just seeing these comments 🙁 I have loved our group too – so kind and understanding! 🙂
