Great day at Bee Blessed

We had such a productive day at Bee Blessed.  Everyone was doing something different, new skills were learnt and we had a ball.  Lots of photographs to follow.

This is how we spent yesterday!

The Wheel of Time quilt has turned out even better than we expected and is basted and ready for quilting.  I love how the different shades of navy and grey make it so interesting and I could look at this all day.  Thanks for the blocks you sent to us. We are like kids in a sweet shop checking them out.

Last month we set The Churn Dash block and whoop! whoop! they have been arriving with us throughout the month.

So....this month we made a start on the reverse Churn Dash which we will alternate with last month's blocks. The pattern is here.

 Thanks Ceri for donating this stunning quilt top, which is much appreciated and will soon be ready for a new home. 

Another kiddie quilt is almost complete... is our New Orleans Star Quilt, which still gets referred to as the Trudi Quilt.  Just the borders to add and it will be ready for basting and quilting.

Someone, before my time (lol I mean before I became involved),  kindly donated some fabric to Bee Blessed amongst which was this cute jelly roll. The pattern is Hopscotch by Thimble Blossoms and it will definitely bring a smile to its new owner with its cheery brightness.

Last, but not least, another quilt top from a donated Layer Cake was sewn together and is now ready for borders, basting and quilting.  

So I can safely say we were productive in between the chat and catch ups.  

We too at Bee Blessed were blessed with a donation and I'll post that tomorrow.  
We loved and appreciated it!!!

Happy Sewing...


  1. So many great quilts! You have all been such busy bees. The wheel of time is absolutely stunning. What a brilliant man quilt that will make! I keep skimming back up to stare at it - great choice.
