My husband is still in hospital – very anxious to have him home again. I have tried to occupy my mind with my sewing and like a busy bee I cannot settle to anything for very long. However, I have managed to unearth some UFO and set to preparing the backing and pinning together. First up , my Bee Quilt that has the cross stitch bee as its centrepiece.
Jogged anyone’s memory. It was a while ago (2018-2019), indeed my first attempt at patchwork. Do you like the cute bee stencil? Plan is to draw stencil on block as shown and around the centre piece and then just do diagonal lines following the design if you see what I mean.
Secondly, I have planned out and started to cut out a new Honey Bee Quilt using a Gail Pan Design for the centre piece and work a 9 patch block around this as shown. The little bee hives have been fussy cut from the stripe fabric you can see in the centre area. Looks sweet already.
I have cut the centre piece about and added the green bees as though flying across a meadow back to the hive. The plan for this is to have flower borders from the stripe fabric down either side of the nine patch blocks and then a 3 row 3″ pieced border of the various fabrics at the top and bottom.
Well that is all for now. Take care everyone.
