So a quick recap ...
As Queen Bee I have a philosophy. Keep it simple. Clean, uncomplicated and not too taxing.
I asked for big bold red plus squares and big bold red plus squares I got. And I asked that we have fun and visit another worker bee to 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".
(Quick repeat of Sunday's photos coming up )
I laid them all out in the garden to get an overview.
The blocks came in fast and furious. The postman was in overdrive. I'm 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 one go. So much for me and delayed gratification!
First to arrive were Judy's from www.quiltparadigm.blogspot.com Judy very generously sent me three blocks.
Next up was Katie who blogs at www.karmawillowdesigns.blogspot.com and Katie fantastically sent me three blocks as well.
Coming quick and fast was Rebecca from www.oneweebird.blogspot.com who sent me an unbelievable four blocks, including a gorgeous one with a cup and saucer central block.
The two blocks with the cats I will treasure because Karen designs and prints her own fabric. I was so excited to see Karen's cat fabric and consider myself honoured to have it in my quilt. Karen isn't on IG and she doesn't blog
Tracey knows we love to holiday in the USA so she took the opportunity to include the US flag in her three blocks! Thanks so much for that Tracey. You can find Tracey at traceysbitsnpieces.blogspot.com
So, not so much sewing my stash, but making use of everybody else's stash this week!
