The Bee Hive

I'm excited to be participating in my first quilting bee - The Bee Hive! This lovely virtual quilting bee is hosted by Blossom Heart Quilts and Gnome Angel.

The Bee Hive

I'm part of swarm 21 and am so looking forward to getting to know my bee-mates this year! The Bee Hive is a year long bee, where each month everyone in the swarm makes 1 block for the "queen bee" of the month. The queen bee gets to select her block and colors, and then ends up with 12 coordinating blocks to make a quilt.

Right now it's looking like I'll be queen bee in November, so I have lots of time to think about my quilt. In the meantime, though, I can't wait to get started making blocks for all the ladies in my swarm! I'll be sharing updates on bee blocks throughout the year. One other really fun part of all this - my mom & I are in the same swarm! I love that we get to do this together even though we live a couple of states apart.
