Bees In The Attic Bee Hive met Wednesday morning at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  Pat was Queen Bee this month.  Above, you can see the blocks we gave her.

Last month, Pat showed us five blocks that she had made so we could have an idea of what she wanted.  You can read about it here (scroll down).  Pat also gave each of us a generous amount of fabrics that she asked us to use when making her block.

Pat's block is called Bitty Bits and is from the book Irish Chain Quilts by Melissa Corry. I'm looking forward to see this quilt finished.  Pat said she is making it for her daughter who wanted these colors.  It is going to be stunning.

Cheryl is going to be Queen Bee next month.  Unfortunately, she could not be with us on Wednesday.  However, she did send us directions for making this Chain block.  She also gave each of us fabrics to be included when making the above block.  She said in her note that we will need additional fabric to complete the block and asks that we choose autumn colors.  Looking forward to seeing Queen Cheryl next month!

  • Another date/time has been added for the Quilt Block Cookbook BOM.  We have added an evening session for this new group.  That first evening session will be held Monday, September 26, at 6 p.m.  The day session will be held Wednesday, September 28, 11 a.m.  Call the shop to register so we will be sure to have enough kits available.
