Now I can show you my challenge quilt.  As I mention in a periously posting that this year's challenge is BACK TO TRADITIONAL QUILTING –YOUR GRANDMA’S QUILT. On June 16th Wee  Bee Quilters of DC participated in the North Michigan Park Rec Center's family Day.  This is an annual affair and we always hang our quilts and have a challenge.  We always have a viewers choice contest.  My quilt won 3rd prize.  I was so surprise because I never won a ribbon for my quilts.  This is a Jacob's Ladder Pattern but I used African fabric and black fabric.

These are my Craftsy One line class "Block of the Month"  blocks for June and July. I do not like doing the dresden plate pattern(the blocks on the left) because you have to use templates. The modern nine patch (the blocks on the right).  See my earlier posting for the blocks January - May.

More Queen Bee Pictures

Take a look at all the beautiful gifts . Some of the gifts were handmade my Shirley R. and Gwen J.  I just love the different bees.  They didn't know that my Sorority, Eta Phi Beta Sorority, icon is the Honey Bee.  The Mug Rug with the teapot and cup was given to me as a Christmas Gift last year by Patty D.   Gwen J. and Shirley R.  spent endless hours making these lovely and buying the gifts.  You can't see the bracelet to well, but it has a little bee in the middle surrounded by beads on a silver chain.  The apron was made by Shirley R.  This is a picture of my family members in attendence. Left to right, my niece,
Angela, my sister June, my nephew and his wife, Aaron and Rosita.  It was totally a suprise that they were there.
