The Bees in The Attic bee hive met at the Attic Window Quilt Shop on Wednesday.  Above, Queen Bee Peggy receives her blocks.
We were unable to put all our blocks on Peggy's "robe," so we resorted to placing them on the floor.  Aren't they beautiful!  This is probably not the layout that Peggy will use but it was a good way for us to see them all together.  I can't wait to see Peggy's finished quilt!
Next up is Pat who is Queen Bee for next month.  Above she holds up a sample block of how she wants our blocks for her to look like.
Pat has made four blocks so we are able to see how this quilt is going to look.  I love her colors.
Since this is a large block and Pat wants specific colors and fabrics in the blocks, she generously gave each of us a kit full of fabrics along with printed instructions.  Thank you Pat!  This is wonderful.
We also had some show-n-tell after the meeting.  Above Pat shows us this adorable baby quilt that she is making for the West Michigan Quilters Guild.
Cathy was working on her placemats.  She said that on a whim her son-in-law and his brother went to Japan for the weekend and brought her back this fabric.  They did a great job of picking out fabric!

Lee Anne showed us this bag that she made.  It is lovely and I look forward to making this with her.  Watch for her class in September.  It is a wonderful size and I'm thinking a great place to carry my cutting mat and rulers back and forth to class.

Peggy's blocks look great together. I'll be interested to see how she chooses to sew them together. I love the block Pat picked.
