(Busy) Killer Bees………………..

My South Texas quilt group is amazing!!!! I really do NOT think they sleep!!!!! I mean….really!!! The weekly meetings result in a “sharing” time that proves this thought. Today’s time began with many of the “flimsys”/quilt tops that were put together at the workshop I led last week (see here)…………..IMG_7971IMG_7972 Yup, that top on the right was slashed to accept a diagonal “banner” piece of fabric!!!!!!! A closer view…………….IMG_7973IMG_7974IMG_7975IMG_7978IMG_7983And, lastly…IMG_7977   If you follow the provided links back to earlier posts, the pattern is available. It is clever and allows for the side setting triangles to frame the center squares, set on point, without any troublesome math involved! The only caveat is that there is no 1/4” beyond the outer triangle points which results in the appearance of them being “cut off”. That may bother some (myself not being one!!!!!).

Now, on to the rest of the show/tell………(below) A Leah Day “Stitch Along” piece…….


  IMG_7982IMG_7984A clever tote made from selvages!!!!!!

IMG_7985IMG_7988      Fun with a 15 degree wedge!

IMG_7990IMG_7992  And from “leftovers”……IMG_7993                     ***********


This may appear to be like the workshop “Twist & Shout” tops but these setting triangles were done the ‘old fashioned way’!!!!!!



IMG_7994         These gals found time to take an additional workshop using folded fabric to make these cute pieces! IMG_7995And a piece…finally a ‘finish’.

Now……there was a workshop that completed our time together. Rozann walked us through a “Felted Wool Applique” piece………IMG_8004IMG_8009    The piece on the foreground table is entirely from felted pieces from thrift shops!!! Wow!!!

 IMG_8005IMG_8006IMG_8007           So that about wraps up this week’s get together. I think I’ll go take a nap!!!!!! Til next time……………………

    These ladies are so much fun, or I think they must be, with so many smiles and colors!

  2. Amazing collection of fabulous quilts! The variety of the quilts from the workshop is incredible. I personally like the butterfly quilts because I have been thinking about (another) project for some teenage girls. This might be perfect! Do you perhaps know if it is a specific pattern?

  3. What stands out for me in these art pieces are the vivid colors. And, then the incredible variety and talent showcased. Thank you for this lovely gallery tour.

    Once again there are some wonderful tops in there. You are quite right those Killer Bees do not sleep or perhaps they just don’t do housework! That I am afraid is my choice when I have a large commission or project on the go.
