We had our last fun day out yesterday, before the official ‘start back to school’ today.
The sun shone on this most beautiful of National Trust sites, Mountstewart, Co.Down.
A lovely way to end a great summer of fun with my 3 brilliant girls!
And so back to business!
September is just around the corner, and Bee Blessed gets up and running again on 6/9. So here is the block we will be making to kick start the new term:
I think these cute boat blocks will make great children’s quilts. You can find the tutorial for the 12.5″ unfinished block here. (You may find it easier to cut 4″ squares for the hsts, instead of 3 7/8″, and trim them down to size.)
Please keep to solid white for the background and blue for the sea! The rest of the boat can be in any colours you choose!
We hope the break over the summer has allowed you some creative space, and that you are ready and willing to get stuck in again to supporting children and families here in Belfast and beyond through the special gifting of comforting quilts.
And if you live locally, and love quilting, please come and join us once a month! Get in touch if you’d like more information or check out the Bee Blessed page here.
