Let’s Bee Social #159

Posted on: January 11th, 2017 by Lorna McMahon

Welcome to the Let’s Bee Social!

We had a SNOW day on Tuesday…. This Friday I will be posting Yesterday I posted the details for the new “Have a Jolly Little Christmas” quilt along for 2017 and the quilt along will begin on January 14th. I am so excited!!!

Did I mention there is a free PDF download for the free colouring pages?


In the meantime, I have been busily sewing up all those blocks. Making sure the instructions are accurate and easy to follow. Hope you will be quilting along!

Here are a few of my favourite blocks….


Cardinal in the Pines



Partridge in a Pear Tree


Moostle Toe


Santa’s Reindeer


See the Deer Lake and Whitetail Lake?


See the Whitetail Lake and Buck Lake?
I’ll be sharing some of my projects made using these blocks in the coming weeks. Hope you will consider joining in the Have a Jolly Little Christmas QAL. All the details are here.
Now… It’s your turn for Show and Tell!!!

    Really do enjoy seeing your wildlife quilts. I don't have a blog to link but currently working on an old Craftsy quilt with roosters and playing with Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilt – well my variation of it anyway.So many quilts I'd love to make but I don't think I will live to 200 years old!Many thanks.

    Such an adorable quilt! And now. . . fabric that labels the object it creates 🙂 What Next???

  6. Oh that cardinal!!! I especially love the ornaments block, too. I appreciate all the design options you've shared in the QAL post. My brain is churning…

  7. Mari says:

    Moostle-toe! I love it! Wonderful fabrics you chose, too. I will definitely be making those festive ornaments!

    I love cardinals but all the designs are so wonderful! I ordered the pattern along with the hamster and mama hen/chicks. I want several others too but will have to save my pennies first. Our vet has a guinea pig and they will be having a Grand Opening next month for their new larger office so I want to make them an Office Warming Gift first, then the cardinal!

  9. Such cute patterns. I'm always looking forward to seeing what critters are next.

  10. Love all your blogs and the wonderful fabrics you've used.

    These are all such fun blocks!?! … and that fabric that you used for the deer really looks like it was custom made! Looking forward to seeing more!

    I've decided to tackle all my UFOs and WIPs lingering around. I've got some I started years ago so I've got them all out and I've put them at the top of my list.

  13. These are just so cute! They are all my favorite blocks! I can't pick one.

  14. Moostle Toe…..Ha!Love your blocks 🙂

  15. I can't wait to get started. Guess I need to find some fabric…and fast. LOL
