First my purchases. I have been
I also got some fantastic backing for my quilt from Cindy at Fluffy Sheep Quilting in her blogversary sale. This origami fabric will be perfect. Mind you the future dil spotted the photo on IG and asked were the skeletons to be the backing!
As Queen Bee I have a philosophy. Keep it simple. Clean, uncomplicated and not too taxing. Everybody is able to complete, everybody has a feel good buzz and I have no difficult matching and sizing up. Win Win all round. With this in mind I asked for "plus squares." You may remember my blue plus quilt of last year ended up like the Swedish flag. The plus square was by default still on my list.
My only criteria were big bright red pluses and low volume backgrounds. And to have fun and to visit another worker bee and say hello. And have fun we did. Everybody was absolutely brilliant. The blocks got a great reception, there was lots of bee crashing and "everything was just lovely".
I laid them all out in the garden today to get an overview.
The blocks came in fast and furious. The postman was in overdrive. I was going to show you the first 6 worker bees tonight then follow up tomorrow with the others and the fabulous bee crashers. I realise now it is waaaay to much to blog in two goes. So much for me and delayed gratification! I'll show you the individual blocks through this week.
