Last September it was my month to be Queen Bee in the Hipbees quilting bee.
I asked these super talented ladies to each make me a Wonky Chevron block with some rainbow scraps I sent them, and they didn’t disappoint!
Here they all are, sewn together, with the extra yellow chevrons that Di kindly made, in the borders.
It was so bright and sunny earlier this week when I snapped this, that the yellow gingham border looks really insipid. But rest assured, it isn’t half as washed out as it appears here!
I’ve thought long and hard about what to ‘do’ with this quilt, and after running an idea past my lovely Hipbee ladies, have decided to donate this cot size quilt to our local Mums and Babies HIV unit.
Bee Blessed have been making kiddy quilts for this unit recently, and this one will join the growing pile which will soon be handed over to some very needy families.
And the other sewing I’ve done this week …
… a scrappy Spider’s web block for Thursday’s Block Party class.
And I’ve also been chopping into these …
… which will hopefully become a ‘boy’ quilt for a very special wee man!
