Here's my block for Suzanna - I love all the jewel tones she sent and I had a hard time settling down on selecting my final choices for this block. Inspired by Madeline, I think I'll make a second block with the fabric that didn't make it into this one. It's a addictive block! You can make it look so different through fabric choices!
Yesterday, my family and I went up to Ottawa to take my daughter to a meeting, and we had a nice visit with Suzanna and her husband, who used to be our neighbours until very recently. It's the first time I've ever been able to hand over a bee block in person! I was green with envy to see Suzanna's dedicated sewing room in their new house, plus her quilts that she has artfully placed around the house. She showed me the spot she has picked out in the dining room to hang the quilt that we make for her in the Bee. It's going to look fabulous!
