Let’s Bee Social # 169
Welcome to the Let’s Bee Social!
Wow! I am so happy to be here!
Last Tuesday I had to have my appendix removed. Quite suddenly. So here I am now…. Glad to be able to share another Let’s Bee Social weekly linky party with you!
This week I am feeling pretty close to “normal” again. I spent Monday morning with the ladies from the Quaker Quilt Guild in Norwich providing a trunk show and was so very grateful to have some help carrying those totes of quilts and patterns into the show and out again. You can see photos over at Cindy’s blog at Stitchin At Home. Thanks for your hospitality, Cindy!
Here and there I have been working on some new design ideas. And today I am happy to announce the new Bumper2Bumper pattern is ready to go!
I am so pleased to have finally come come up with a design that finally focuses on those boys in our lives. This car design puts me in mind of when my son was a wee little guy. He loved ANYTHING with WHEELS. And he still does…
I was only going to offer this in one block size – the smaller car block finishes at 5″ x 9″. Using 28 blocks, and the layout as shown at the beginning of this post, this would result in a 38″ x 43″ baby size quilt.
But then I started thinking about how those little boys always grow into bigger boys. And I thought of how many of them retain their love of cars. So the block is also offered in a larger size finishing at 10″ x 18″. The same layout of the large blocks allows for a twin size quilt finishing at 76″ x 86″.
If you have a car guy in your life that you would like to make a car quilt for, you can find the Bumper2Bumper quilt pattern listed here in my pattern shop.
