A Happy Day

Today has been a happy day. I have pulled out my beautiful bee blocks that the Bee a Brit Stingy have made for me and I have started to plan the layout of my bee quilt.

I love all the colours that the sprout blocks are made in. I appreciate the time that have gone into making them but above all, I cherish the friendships that I have made by being in this bee.
Sorting the sprouts into colours
This is the layout that I have eventually gone for.

There are a few gaps that I need to fill, so I have started to make a few extra sprouts to complete the quilt top.

I also received this pile of lovely fabric from Lynz today. 
hipBee challenge from Lynz
Lynz is Queen bee in the hipBees this month. Note that the handmade card is colour co-ordinated with the fabric and attached to the card is a sweet little bee pin that Lynz has made. Thank you Lynz for the pin and I will try my best to make a good block for you!

  16. LOVE your sprouts! That's going to be such a fab and unusual quilt. And I'm glad you liked the wee bee - although I'm hoping you got 6 fabric strips and not 5 or I've cocked it up! *g*
