The Bees In The Attic bee hive met Wednesday at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  It was the first day of a new Bee.  Members of the previous bee brought their quilts for show-n-tell.  Above, Shirley shows us her quilt.  As I recall, Shirley gave each member of the hive the red fabrics and some of the white/cream fabrics.  She told us to add the blues and whites to complete our blocks.  It is amazing how all the blocks came together to make this stunning quilt.
Above, Peggy shows us her finished quilt.  She gave us the Kaffe Fassett fabrics and told us to add the whites and creams from our stash.  What a beautiful quilt!
Above, Charity shows us her flimsy.  She had asked us to use the fabric in the kits she distributed to make the Coins In The Fountain block from the book Irish Chain Quilts by Melissa Corry.  What a lovely quilt.  I can't wait to see how she quilts it.
I don't think Cathy was too happy with me taking pictures when she was trying to talk.  However, she graciously volunteered to be the first Queen in this new Bee, so I had to take her picture.  Today she distributed kits for us to make the Flutter Pattern from the Fat Quarter Book (page 48-51).  This is an easy block.  Just don't forget to make your angles so they kiss!

All the quilts look so great. I'd be hard pressed to choose a favorite. That blue and orange one at the bottom has really captured my attention. I love how it looks.
