Jill B. was the Queen Bee when the Bees In The Attic met at the Attic Window Quilt Shop on Wednesday.  This was the final meeting for this year's group.
 Jill got busy right away placing our blocks to show us how the quilt is going to look.  Because this quilt will demand more blocks than the 11 of us made, Jill made a strip of the blocks to help us visualize how it will look.  Jill is going to use the Quilt As You Go method for making this quilt.
 This gives you a better view of the lay out.  We were asked to use the white fabric that Jill gave us and to add dark blue fabric where called for in the squares.
This is going to be a beauquilt with all the different blue in it.
Jill had a little surprise for us.  She said she made this quilt top years ago and was giving it to anyone who wanted it.  Peggy was the lucky person who took the quilt top home with her.  Thanks Jill!

Our group is starting another Bee, which will begin next month.  We are still looking for one more person to join us.  If you are interested in joining the group please call the shop to sign up or send me an email.  We have chosen two new books that we will be working from this year.  I'm looking forward to another fun year with the Bees In The Attic bee.
