Honorary Brit Bee Member

Last night I had the great honor of beeing (har har) a Brit Bee member for an evening.  It was just super!  I had started chatting with the lovely, vivacious Katy quite some time ago about bees.  As it turned out, her month to be Queen Bee of Brit Bee was quickly approaching.  I volunteered to make a block for her Brit Bee quilt...wouldn't that be fun?


Little did I know it would be a retroflower.  Eeek!  Curves, curves and more curves!  I quickly became the delinquent member of Brit Bee and ignored the gorgeous pre-cut orange dotty print Katy sent over.  Last night I finally put on my big girl pants, watched Leanne's spectacular curved piecing video and went to town.

Katy, I can not tell you how much I enjoyed piecing this block.  The instructions she sent for trimming were amazing, the fabric was gorgeous and it was nice to imagine my fellow bloggy buddies who also contributed to this quilt.  Thanks so much, Brit Bee, for letting me join in as an honorary member.  xx
