My pals from the annual Gruber’s Bloggers Retreat have started a Quilting Bee with each other!
We’re calling it the Sew Sisters Quilting Bee.
And I’ve made my first block!
Cindy from Live a Colorful Life went first, and she requested a Dresden Plate block.
We were to use clear brights and a black/white center circle. Cindy recommended THIS tutorial, and the use of Darlene Zimmerman’s Easy Dresden Tool.
I have owned this tool for a long time and never tried it. This was the perfect opportunity, and it was super super easy!
I love this block. I’ve decided that I’m going to make 2 of every Bee Block, so I can send one off and keep one for myself! I should have enough for a sampler quilt when we’re all done.
Cindy also requested a signature block from each of us, and recommended THIS tutorial for those:
Of course, I had to use cowboy fabric for mine!
So far, the Bee is off to a wonderful start, and if you have the urge to make a Dresden Plate, I highly recommend trying it — this was so much fun!
