Quick Update

It's a dismal day in Belfast and I've reluctantly accepted that winter is just around the corner. A perfect day to spend indoors, bringing you up to date with our last get together.

The quilt top below was made from two donated charm packs; pieced, trimmed and sewn together, they produced this riot of loveliness. Borders have been chosen and are awaiting completion when time permits.


A donated Layer Cake this time.  We saw a similarly completed quilt on Pinterest but I can't find the link to tag.  If it's yours, thanks for posting it.

...and I even found time to play with my longarm rulers!  (you probably can't see the straight lines, but believe me they are there)


Another cutsie baby panel is ready for binding.


This pattern came from Camille Roskelley's book, entitled Simply Retro.  How to quilt it....??


Last month this completed quilt top made its way to us...thank you... and we decided to add some borders. Perfect fabric or what!!! I don't know where you got that fabric, Ros, but it was made for this quilt.

We hoked and poked and came up with the perfect bits and pieces of left over whatnots, to piece a back.  Waste not, want not!   I do love a pieced back but boy is it slow to cut straight when it's as big as this.  


It just remains for me to thank you for making and sending us last month's blocks.  You can see some of them below.  Would you believe, thinking I was super organised whizzing off to Bee Blessed,  I left some of them at home!!!  So there are more...sorry if yours is missing.

I hope to make and post December's block in the next few days when I get a free moment.  So until then...

Happy Sewing 


  1. I love to read these updates of your Bee Blessed productions. I see so much loveliness and resourcefulness as you seek out patterns for donated pre-cuts and look to make beauty from the bits and bobs! These are gorgeous - you lovely Bees are going from strength to strength!

  2. That pieced back is a perfect quilt in itself and works so well with the donated top and borders. Onward and upward for 2018
