 The newly formed Bees In The Attic Bee Hive met today at the Attic Window Quilt Shop. Above, Cathy M. explains how a Bee Hive works and distributes the monthly schedule which indicates when we will meet and who will be queen that month.
Notice all the cell phones?  Cathy is instructing those with an iPhone how to set up an account on Instagram.  That is where we will show our blocks and ask about fabrics.  I'm at another table talking to those who have an Android.
 Above, Pat shows us a sample block that she made from the book we are using.  When she is queen she expects to ask us to make this block.  Seeing this now, gives me enough time to collect some of those gray fabrics.
This is a closeup of Pat's block.  I love the fabrics she has chosen.
 A few of us stayed and sewed at the shop after our meeting.  Cathy made another one of these no curve sewing blocks.
So far Cathy has made all of these blocks.  She's not sure what she intends to do with them, turn them into placemats or make a table runner.

  • The Scrappers Helping Hands will meet Saturday, May 28.  Rosa said that she has plenty of pillowcase kits for your to work on.
  • Knotty Girls, Wednesday, June 1
  • Doll Bee, Thursday, June 2
