Yesterday at Bee Blessed we made great progress on some of our WIPs!

This is the Funky Wrench Quilt for Siblings Together, all basted and ready for quilting.

And this is the Road to Tennessee quilt top, all sewn together! Isn’t it fab!

Bee Blessed Starflower quilt layout

The beautiful starflowers have now been trimmed, laid out and sewn into rows.  Not long now til this will be basted, quilted and bound!

Our youngest member of BB got her first ever quilt finished!!  The only bit she didn’t sew was the binding!  A big ‘thank you’ to Cindy for donating the little pre-cut squares that went into this quilt!

And a big ‘thank you’ too to folks who have recently donated fabric and blocks.  We appreciate every single one! 

If on occasion you don’t happen to see your block in a finished quilt, it might be because it was too small (i.e. finished under 12.5″) or we had more blocks than we needed for one quilt.  However, we keep ALL the blocks that are made for us, and when we have enough odd ones gathered up, we make sampler quilts with them.  So please don’t despair!  We make a huge effort to try and use everything we are given!

Of course there was lots more activity yesterday – squaring off blocks, sewing up rows, quilting and making binding!

And to make our quilt labelling process much quicker, we got the clever peeps at Spoonflower to make us these!

Don’t they look the business!!

And for anyone who is local to Belfast, I have updated the BB page with our Autumn dates (no meetings over the summer).  You are most welcome to come and join in the stitchery fun!

Have a wonderful weekend!
