Let’s Bee Social # 99

Posted on: November 18th, 2015 by Lorna McMahon

My three best sewing friends and I have been busy as a beaver. I don’t know what I would do without my seam ripper, pointer tweezers and little snips. We now have all the blocks completed for the Forest Friends quilts. And are expecting to release the pattern this Friday! So stay tuned!

I am using the Canadian Beaver block for the baby quilt version in place of the American Eagle blocks that will be used in the twin size version.

Yesterday’s job was sewing on all that sashing and borders and preparing the backing and binding.
Today I will be quilting these critters!


Thank you Michael Miller Fabrics for sponsoring this fun project with that yummy Cotton Couture! Did I mention how soft those Cotton Couture are? I can’t wait to snuggle up with one of these finished quilts!
