Save the Bee's BOM - Starting point.



There is a Free BOM (4 blocks!) from Jacquelynne Steves called 'Save the Bee's'. She sent the first block instructions out on Monday and will release one block per month over the next 4 months. I  finally looked at some fabrics and decided to use up some of the hand dyed or batik scraps I have hanging around from a few quilts I have made. I know I have more somewhere... but these were in a basket just asking to be used! I think I will have a purple flower for the first block. I'm still deciding colors for the outside... time to break out the coloring pencils and see what I come up with and what fabrics I can find to make it work!

Have you signed up yet? There is still time and for ideas you can visit a few of her testers who have already completed their first block. This will be my first attempt at embroidery - wish me luck.
