Let’s Bee Social #118
Welcome to the Let’s Bee Social!
This past week was a busy one.
Got a lot of piecing and pattern writing done. But not much quilting.
I have been sharing progress pictures of my Black Birds baby quilt on my Facebook and Instagram feeds. Now I am hoping for a Friday Finish!
While playing around with my EQ7 this week, I came up with a blue bird version. This one is using Northcott Fabrics’ Artisan Spirit Ambience and Artisan Spirit Shimmer fabrics.
|Black Birds with blue bird – 40″ x 46″|
Gotta love the straight line quilting….
And isn’t the label simply incredible?!!!
And here we have another Elephant Parade! This one was made by Libby.
Libby says, “Hello Lorna, Just wanted to say thanks for the lovely pattern. I’m just getting it ready to mail off to the New Hamburg Mennonite Relief Sale. A little late, but I’m a hand quilter. It turned out lovely though and I may make it again. Thanks again.“
Libby wrote me back again, “Hello Lorna. I just sent you the picture of my quilt. Well, you know how busy us quilter are… Just read a note from the relief quilting committee. They got my letter too late and I’m going to send it next year. Thanks again for the lovely quilt pattern. Lots of people just love it.”
I also want to share this sweet Family of Three giraffe quilt made by Ric.
Ric says, “I have 2 nieces having their 1st baby (boys, both) within 2 months of each other. One loves giraffes, the other elephants. Sorry the giraffe pic isn’t very clear but the daddy giraffe has brown plaid spots, mommy has flowers and baby has spots in “new calf just licked by mom” look fabric.”
“Elephant daddy has plaid ears, baby has dots and mommy has butterflies. Thank you for this pattern! It is perfect for both.” Ric included a bone wish leaf for their dog Rosey and a John Deere leaf for her dad.
Be sure to leave a kind word or two to let these ladies know how much we appreciate all their hard work. And keep sending in those inspiring photos and emails! Makes me smile!
