I was Queen Bee for January/ February!

It was my turn in January/ February to be the Queen Bee for my Quilty Circle of Bees.

I chose a gorgeous pattern after seeing this quilt made by friends of Maureen Cracknell.
It's the Amsterdam pattern by Cloud 9 Fabrics and available for free as a download here.

I tested the block before I gave out instructions to my bees and these are the blocks I made:

And these are only a few of the amazing blocks I received from my really busy bees as they did a lot more blocks than I had asked for.

What a great bunch of flowers on my design wall! I only have to do two more blocks and then I can piece the quilt top already. This will be such a happy quilt and perfect to bring on spring!!

Thank you, Ladies!!

  6. Hallo Daniela, den Amsterdam Quilt habe ich auch als Bee Block für die Modern Cologne Bee gewählt! Ich bin von den ersten Probe-Blöcken, die ich gemacht hatte schon sehr begeistert, aber Du bist ja da schon fast fertig! Sieht ganz toll aus! Liebe Grüsse, Christiane
