Let’s Bee Social #94

Posted on: October 14th, 2015 by Lorna McMahon

Welcome to this week’s Let’s Bee Social!

Yesterday I met up with Sandy of Upstairs Hobby Room….
In real life!

Sandy was the winner of the fat quarter bundle of Fusion Illusion from Blank Quilting giveaway in this post. And when I emailed her to inform her of her good fortune, Sandy suggested we meet halfway and have a coffee together.

What could be better? Fabric, friends and coffee! What a great combination!

It was so much fun to meet up with someone that I had gotten to know over the last couple of years through blogging. And to just sit and talk about quilts with someone who actually enjoys that being the focus of the conversation.

Sandy is a talented quilter who keeps herself super busy. She seems to always be testing out patterns for someone or an other at any given time. Sandy has done some pattern testing for me before and I am never disappointed. Her work is impressive and always on time with great feedback.

Right now Sandy is running a brand new One Block Wonders BOM series on her blog. You really aught to check it out. And if you are on instagram, I highly recommend that you follow Sandy here!!!

Now it’s time for the linky party!!!!! What’s buzzing at your hive?
