Welcome to the Let’s Bee Social!
What am I working on this week?


I am working away on my blocks for the Farm Friends quilt pattern.
In addition to the Horses, Cows and Billy Goats from last week, I have finished all 6 Pigs, Ducks, Chicks and Dogs needed for the Full Farm setting.
I also have all my Sheep, Baby Cows and Cat blocks finished.
The Farm Friends pattern is now available!!!

This farm themed quilt pattern provides instructions for making the complete quilt in 4 sizes:

  • Baby Farm finishes at 40″ x 45″
  • Cows finishes at 40″ x 45″
  • Horses finishes 40″ x 53″
  • Full Farm finishes at 83″ x 88″

Farm Friends is an 11 page pdf quilt pattern, made using traditional piecing methods. No templates. No paper piecing. Only simple straight line sewing and diagonal seams. Pattern includes material requirements lists for each of the four size settings and charts for each quilt block.
