THE BEE HAS BUGS

More pictures from the First Saturday Bee at the Attic Window Quilt Shop. Above is a close up of the Amy Bradley Pattern, Bug Quilt.

Cookie Skipp made this darling quilt and graciously let me post it. I love this quilt. It looks like she used the turned under method of appliqué. She said she made it because she likes bugs. Me too. I've got to make this one.

Gerry Cavanaugh made this Red/Green quilt. She started it last year when she participated in Redwork Club. Gerry said that a friend of Barb David’s found the blocks in a church. They were over 100 years old and never set in a quilt. Barb took the blocks and copied the designs for the Club to use.

This is a close up of one of the blocks. Doesn’t she do beautiful work! Look at all that feather stitching down the seams.

Matching Pegs has a couple tutorials that are interesting. On the right sidebar there is a link to a tutorial for a Star Fruit Cushion and below that a link for making a patchwork Tee. Check it out.

Until next time,
Caroll

Love Amy Bradley's patterns, they have such personality! She did a good job on that.

Those are wild and crazy bugs you have there. Very cute! Gerry's embroidery is beautiful. Well done, Gerry. Love the link as well.

Have a super great day.
