My Bees Knees Block

I am part of a wonderful quilting bee called BEES KNEES.
Seriously, I get to rub shoulders with the most talented ladies.
July is my month to select a block to be made by the group, and then mailed back to me.

With permission from Allison of Cluck, Cluck, Sew, I have chosen
Spin Cycle.
Love, love, love this darling quilt.
And the blocks just felt perfect for a memory with The Bees.
*If you would like to order Spin Cycle, it can be purchased from Allison as a PDF file HERE

I'm all about using what I have right, so this will be a very scrappy quilt.
Fabrics are now cut and assembled into little packets.

I'm off to the post office this morning with mailers for each of the 11 ladies in the group.

They really are THE BEES KNEES!

so every one makes a block - you supply the fabric and then it gets sent back to you and you assemble and keep - talk about a fast way to get a quilt completed - I like that pattern!
