Plan Bee!

Well, there was no Plan A!

This, however, is the plan for my turn for the

Mid-Century Modern Bee...


a paper pieced AMH Feather!

I made one last year and loved how it looked!



And it has been on my 'to-do' list all year....

Once I had this colour palette in my mind....


but so few of the fabrics to make it with,

I decided to enlist the help of my bee buddies!


So sure I was of making this quilt, I had bought 3+ 

yards of background solid...

(but have no idea of its name/shade!)

It is somewhere between a grey and a beige.


I cut and sent a piece to all my ladies, 

with two little parcels 

taking less than four days

(Melbourne to California) 

to get there!


So now I am asking for one feather, 

foundation pieced to 

save on fabric, using this tutorial!

In fact, Linda has already made one!

Thank you Linda- its perfect!

Here's one I made earlier.....



I am really loving being the Queen Bee of May!


Happy sewing!
