They also had this small one, wall hanging size. Each square is one inch!
They emailed a supplies list so we could have our fabric cut and ready for which ever one of the three sizes we wanted to make.
In class, they showed us how to sew the tricky parts, like the bee's legs and antennae.
Here is my friend, Shirley. She is making the medium size. Look at the other three ladies in the photo. It's like they are diving for cover when I come by with my camera! It's okay, I'll get them next time!
Below is my friend, Diane, on the right. Look how organized she is! All her fabric squares stacked and labeled in a basket. She is the only one in the class who decided to make the largest bee.
As usual, I am easily distracted when sewing in a group, so I didn't get much done at the meeting.
But when I got home, instead of taking my sewing gear upstairs, I took it out to the screen porch and set up to sew out there. The weather was perfect. I was peaceful and content.
I don't need a wall hanging , but I have an idea of something else to use it for.
That's how much I got finished. It is just laid out in partial rows for now. There is going to be a lot of seam matching when it's time to sew rows together!
