Lee Anne was this month's queen when Bees In The Attic bee hive met this month at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  Queen Lee Anne has declared that a sale should be held.   She announced that there is a Sale going on at the shop.  All fall fabric, fall patterns, fall books are on sale for 20% off now through Nov. 5!!

Another of her queenly duties was to sit while we all placed our blocks on the Queen's train.  The Block that Lee Anne had us make for her was Daisy Chain from the book Irish Chain Quilts.

This is a close up of all the blocks.  Lee Ann said she would make several more blocks to go with these.  I can't wait to see her finished quilt.  It is going to be wonderful!  Thanks so much to Lee Anne for supplying each of us working Bees with everything we needed to make this block.

 Next up is Shirley S. who will be the Queen Bee next month.  Shirley has asked us to make the Breaking Up block also from the Irish Chain Quilts book.  We were reminded that this block is made up of an A and a B block in the book.  Shirley gave us nice fabric kits and instructions for completing our blocks.  She said this was a way for her to get her red, white, and blue quilt!

 We also had some show-n-tell at the end of our meeting.  Barb showed us this adorable bag that she made.

 This is a close up of Barb's bag.  I love the colors!

I always like seeing the monthly Bee blocks for the current Queen. I really like Shirley's block. And Barb's bag is such fun.
