Scrappy Trips Quilt Blocks

 Our Queen Bee 
Sherri McConnell (A Quilting Life)
started our new year together
as Bees Knees
by hosting this month.
 Sherri sent us fabric and the free tutorial link to
Bonnie Hunter's Quiltville
Scrappy Trips Around The World
quilt block.
I have made this quilt 
and knew how easy the blocks come together.
Won't this quilt be darling in
 bright and happy 
Christmas fabrics?
Sherri had us put the white fabric down the center of each blocks
which gives Scrappy Trips a new look.
Several people have asked me how
our Bee works.
There are 12 in our group.
We each are assigned a month to "host".
On our month we select a quilt block
we would like the 11 others to make.
We mail the fabric with block instructions
to our Bees Knees members 
who live through out the United States.
They make the block and mail it back to the host.
Through it all we write about our 
experience and post pictures over on our
We have a lot of fun together
and it's kind of like quilting with
your girlfriends
even when we live in 
various locations.
