I'm the Queen Bee!

When I decided to join in on the Bee Hive Quilt Block Swap at the end of last year, I signed up to be Queen during September.  After all, that's my birthday month and everyone knows the world revolves around me anyway.

So this is the block I picked out - Abacus.  It's suppose to look like this when completed.

One of the other members of my "Hive" selected the same block earlier in the year.  But I already had it in my head my goal was a Christmas quilt and to me the block looked like ornaments or a chain of lights.

Here are my 'demo' blocks made up.  This is not the ultimate configuration, but it does give the idea I am heading for.  I will add more dark green for the tree and turn the blocks into a Christmas tree.  So it should be very interesting.

Right now, I am thinking I will do smaller blocks of the same style as a border on my quilt.  But will have to see how it goes with the center and the blocks I receive from the other hive members.  At least doing it this way, I asked them not to sew the blocks together, but to leave them separate so I can move them around.  

Should be an interesting exercise in quilt design!

  1. Oh, that's pretty! I'm glad they all finally realized you're the Empress of All. Well done, there. ;)
