Karen was Queen of the Bees In The Attic Bee Hive when they met Wednesday at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.

These are the blocks she asked us to make for her.  As you can tell, some of the little Bees were busy this morning and didn't make it to our meeting.  I hope we get to see this quilt when it is complete!
Charity will be the Queen next month.  She distributed kits with fabric and instructions.  She is holding up a sample of the block we are to make.
We need to add the flower fabric.
She has asked us to use bright fabrics.
We had a little show-n-tell too.  Above Cathy shows us her quilt.  Last month when she was Queen, we gave her blocks to make this quilt.  You can see and read about it here.
This is the back of the quilt.  Cathy used our little pieces left over from our blocks to make the pinwheels.  She used the Quilt As You Go Method for quilting this quilt.  She left one seam open to show us how she did it.  Great job, Cathy!  She must have really worked day and night to put this King Size quilt together and quilted in just a month.

Great string blocks! The bright flower blocks should look awesome together. I am in AWE of Cathy's quilt, that is stunning, what a cheerful, graphic design!

I love watching these quilt bees! Cathy's quilt is amazing! I'm looking forward to seeing Charity's blocks together to see how her quilt will look.
