Old and New Faces

It's great to welcome some new faces to Bee Blessed (with more new faces to come) as well as catching up with some old faces we haven't seen for a while. Judith popped in to see us with her contribution of two beautiful Friendship Star Blocks.  It's great that although she no longer co-leads Bee Blessed she still continues to support us by making blocks. Thank you...

It was a beautiful sunny day outside yet we beavered away in the basement.  We made some progress with our new Friendship Star Block and put the finishing touches to some quilts...but the ladies took some time to smile for the camera.

Unfortunately I couldn't capture was just after tea break and there was some clearing up going on elsewhere...or were they finishing the lovely scones??

These lovely quilts were finished and go off to their new homes next week.

I had the pleasure of binding and quilting this Baby Boy Contemporary Blocks Quilt last week and I just love it.  It is just one of the many quilts which will be going off to the Mother and Baby HIV Unit at the Royal Victoria Hospital, Belfast.

Green and Peach Trip Around the World Quilt

And finally the Scrappy Triangles Quilt

The photographs don't do these beautiful quilts justice.  We know they will be appreciated and much loved and we thank all of you who have contributed and all of you who continue to support us in any way.
