Let’s Bee Social #57

Posted on: January 28th, 2015 by Lorna McMahon

I want to take this opportunity to thank all of you for all you do.  For doing your part to make this link up so much fun.  For BEEing Social and reaching out to others.  Leaving friendly comments.  And for sharing about this linky party on your blogs.

The word is getting around and last week there was a record number of Social BEEs here linking up at the party.  Over 100!  Wow!

I also want to tell you how much I appreciate all the support and loving wishes you share with me each week.  With all the deadlines and new projects I’ve been busy with, I don’t always have a chance to email a response.  But I certainly do read all comments left.  And when I have the chance, I would rather return the visit instead of replying by email.  BEElieve me… all your kind comments mean a lot to me!

One of the projects I have been working on is, of course, the Elephant Parade quilt along quilt.  And I am happy to say the big reveal will be happening this Friday!

I also want to thank Northcott Fabrics, who is generously sponsoring this project.  Follow along and quilt along while these bright solids from their ColorWorks cottons collection become shaped into these adorable animals!

Elephant Parade QAL

The quilt along will begin on February 1st, as planned.  And if you haven’t checked it out already, the Elephant Parade quilt along page tab can be found at the top of the blog, just below the header.  On this page all the instructions will be linked up each week as they are posted.

Come on!  Everyone loves a parade!

NOW…. Let’s PARTY!!!!  What’s new with you?

    Lorna, I just love that Elephant quilt for the QAL. I wish I could join you but alas I am working on a wedding quilt for my grandson and I will need all my spare time to finish it by May 2nd. It is the Tula Pink Butterfly quilt and it's a major project for me. I'm not the greatest piecer so it takes me a while! Love your blogs. Maybe next time.

  12. Yay! So excited for this! What a year it has been for you and what another year it will be for you! Can't wait for the QAL!
