I've strayed a bit from the original block, but I don't think that Esther would have minded. As someone passionate about flowers, natural landscapes etc,I've been concerned for the plight of Bee populations across our country and the world.
So I decided to make a personal statement with this block.
I drew my bees onto a solid taupe background using an archival ink marker. (Micron) Then cut them out with a 1/8" seam allowance. Once I stitched them onto the wings, the little legs and antennae were drawn onto the background fabric also using a Micron pigma pen size 01. The bodies of each little bee measure just under 1" in length. Click HERE to see more SVBAQ blocks for March.
With barely a flake of snow falling in town all winter, we are bracing for a big snowstorm tonight with possible blizzard conditions. Big businesses in our area have already announced closings for tomorrow.
So it looks like Tuesday is going to be a Snow day - Sew day at my house.
If you will be affected by the storm...Stay safe and if possible, Stay home!
every quilt tells a story...
