Let’s Bee Social #242

Posted on: September 19th, 2018 by Lorna McMahon

Welcome to the Let’s Bee Social!

Now that my sewjo seems to have been fully recovered…..

I’ve been inspired with so many new ideas I can’t get them written up fast enough!

Rainbow Paintbrushes


The Rainbow Paintbrushes provides instructions for two sizes – 54″ wide x 56″ tall or the mini version which finishes at 31″ wide x 32″ tall.

I sewed up both quilt tops and shared them with Sew Fresh Quilts on Instagram…..

I KEEP SAYING THIS…. This coming week I hope to have my 6 finished Dachshund Dogs rows sashed and have the borders added….
But meanwhile… More distractions….
These are the new Hedgehogs
First I did a neutral colourway…..
But then I added prints and Wowza!
I am in love and cutting fabric now!!!!




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

What have you been working on?

    Oh I would say your sewjo is definitely back, those paintbrushes are genius, and the hedgehogs are sooo cute!! Welcome back clever lady!

  17. Lorna, I just love how your creative brain works. The paintbrushes are awesome — especially love the one with the tonal prints. How cool would that be if we could actually apply pattern to walls that way, with a swipe of a brush?
