Ready for Grandmother's house! I loved sewing this bee block! What a fun idea for a quilt and love the vintage looking fabric choices! Cannot wait to see everyone's blocks come together in this one! Thank you Trish for such a fun trip down this nostalgic lane!
Hello! I am so excited that May is my month to play along with the bees knees! I apologize for getting my fabric and instructions out so much later than planned. Please don't feel rushed.
I have chosen to create a quilt using pretty little quilts going to grandma's quilt pattern. Growing up, going to my Nanny and Popeye's house was one of my greatest joys. Becoming a nana myself this past year, I just knew I wanted to commemorate such a special time in my life and this adorable quilt will do just that!
What size quilt block do you want your bee partners to make? (Give finished and unfinished measurements, just to be sure.) pattern sent gives specific measurements
Can your partners use any of their own stash fabric to use in your quilt block? If so, are there any limitations? no thank you, I have sent the fabrics needed for individual blocks
Is there a specific color of thread (white/off white) you want your partners to sew with? white or off white is perfect
Do your partners have to use at least a little bit of every fabric you send or can your partners decide? please use fabrics sent
you have a general theme or is it up to your partners to decide? Are
there any specific themes that you do NOT want in your quilt block?
Likes/dislikes? each block will be a suit case Will you allow any embellishments on the quilt block (i.e. embroidery, raised items such as yo-yos or fabric origami)? no thank you
Can you link us to any flickr or Pinterest photos that you would like us to use as inspiration for your quilt block? picture above
If your partners are super motivated and are able to make two blocks out of the fabric you send. there is just enough for one block
