Let’s Bee Social #145

Posted on: October 5th, 2016 by Lorna McMahon
Welcome to the Let’s Bee Social!
What am I working on this week?


I chose my fabrics for the Farm Friends quilt pattern.
Cut everything for the blocks. And started to sew!
Farm Friends – Billy Goat, Cow and Horse blocks

So far I have completed the 6 of each – Billy Goat, Cow and Horse blocks – needed for the Full size quilt. I can hardly believe how many emails I have been getting! This pattern, apparently, is a big hit! And I am expecting to have the pattern release mid month.

 Herd of Horses
Today I am heading to Kingston, Ontario to provide a trunk show tonight for the Limestone Quilters’ Guild. And staying overnight to host a workshop the next morning! Looking forward to an incredible couple of days spent with link-minded makers!
In other news….
Patty of Elm Street Quilts is having a “Bag It” event.  The purpose of the event is to encourage handmade for the holidays by making and sharing handmade bags.  There are a whole bunch of new bag tutorials lined up through late November to inspire. But any bag, any pattern that someone makes and shares can earn them entries into the giveaways.
There is a linkup for you to share your own tutorials too!
And there are prizes!


Now… It’s your turn for Show and Tell!!!

    I smile every time I see these guys! Lorna, you're so creative!

  2. Thank you Lorna again for the party! I love your farm animals and hope to have that my 'christmas holiday project'. x Teje

    I can't wait until the patterns come out for them! My family loves horses and cows, all animals actually but one of my nieces is in college for equine, and my daughter has been trying since she was little to get me to agree to a cow in the back yard, it was upgraded to a horse a few years ago when the niece got her first one!

  4. You've really found your niche, my friend. If someone needs a picture quilt featuring furry creatures, you're the designer for the job! I'm fond of your farm friends (that billy goat has such attitude!), but it's the chickens I can't get out of my mind. Surely I know someone who needs a good chicken quilt! : )

    Your farm animals are looking great Lorna!

  6. Kate says:

  7. You sure have a gift, Lorna! Love your blocks. You have a way of bringing them to life.

    The billy goat!!! SO cute! You have been so busy lately, do you ever rest?!

  9. Patty says:

    Love your new patterns – all 3 of them. I liked the horse when I saw it in your IG feed but now seeing them all again… tough to choose. Thanks for the shout out for my Elm Street Quilts Bag It event!

  10. Your horses are so adorable!! Have fun in Kingston, Ontario.

  11. Unknown says:

    I think this is so cute. It amazes me how good you are at creating these blocks. So inspirational!!!

  12. Mari says:

    I really like your horses, but I really love the cow! They're all so cute. I may feel another grandson quilt coming on!

  13. I am so happy to hear that there is lots of buzz about your pattern. Not at all surprised tho. You have a great touch with designing these critters.Have fun with the show and workshop!!

    The dairy cow is my favorite!! This is going to be a great quilt once it's done 🙂

  15. Allison says:

    I can imagine tht you've been getting so many hits on this one is becuase this is so gender neutral and ALL kids love animals of some kind… I can ever hear Old McDonald being sung when playing on this! As always, super cute!

  16. Rachel says:

    Very pretty! I like that herd of horses! Have fun in Ontario!

  17. Cheryl says:

    I am loving these new animal heads, the horses are my favorite!

  18. Joy says:

    Billy Goat reminds me of my childhood. Love!
