 Barb was the Queen today when the Bees In The Attic Bee Hive met at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  We found the crown.  Can you see Barb is wearing it?
These are the blocks we gave her.  We couldn't find the cape, so we placed our blocks on the table.    Last month, Barb gave us each a kit with fabrics of her choice.  She had even cut the pieces to size.  All we had to do is sew them together. We commented on how much we love the colors and the fabrics.  Barb said that when she was at a shop in Indiana, there was a boat filled with fat quarters.  So, she grabbed all yellow and blue FQs that she could find.  What a great idea!

This is the last meeting for the group this season.  We hope to all get together in the fall and start another Bee.  Mark your calendar and watch for a post of our upcoming meeting.  There is room for all to join our group.  It is a fun group of ladies and doesn't require much time.

 Peggy also had some show-n-tell for us.  Don't you just love this quilt that she made for Neonatal?
 When I commented on the beautiful fabrics, Peggy told us that she used to make quilted jackets.  She said she had an unfinished one that had been laying around for years.  So she tore it apart and used these beautiful fabrics to make her quilt.
 She also quilted it herself.  She has an embroidery machine that lets her do quilting too.  This design is great for a baby quilt.
Peggy also showed us this beautiful quilt that she is going to take to her cottage.
Thank you Peggy for sharing!

 And thanks to all the members of the Bee Hive.  It's been a fun year and I hope you will return in the fall for more socializing and making quilts.
