ARE THERE BEES IN YOUR ATTIC?

The Bees In The Attic Bee Hive met Wednesday at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  Before our meeting started, we had some show and tell.   Above, Barb shows us her latest flimsy.  So cute.
Cathy was queen this month and above she lays out the blocks we gave her.  These were easy blocks.  I think the hard work is yet to come, as Cathy intends to put a strip of fabric and a square between each block.  Can't wait to see the finished quilt.  She is making it for her daughter who just moved into a new house.
Karen is Queen of the hive next month and Wednesday she distributed packets and instructions as to what block she wants us to make for her.  Above she shows us how to do the strip piecing.
These are the fabrics and instructions for the block she wants us to make.  What fun this block will be.

JUST USING MY SCRAPS

I have finished some projects this past week and want to show them to you.  Above is a quilt that I made from blocks donated by the women in a Bee Hive I participated in last year. As I recall they were asked to use their brightly colored scraps to make these blocks.   I hate the new Picasa photo editor because you can't see the wonderful vibrant colors in this quilt.  If anyone has a better photo editor they can tell me about, please do.  Anyway, I love this quilt and thank the women so much for their blocks.
This is the quilt that Adrienne and I worked on during Happy Scrappers at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  She put our blocks together, added the borders and made the backing.  I sandwiched and quilted it and added the binding.  I love how this low volume quilt turned out.
This is a close up of the quilt.
I have worked on this quilt at Happy Scrappers for over a year.  I used scraps to make the blocks.  Again, I was unable to get the vibrant colors to show, but it is really a pretty quilt.  It will go to charity.  
This is a close up.  Ugh, the colors all look washed out!  So sorry.
