When we got back from Fat Quarterly Retreat, I'd been surprised by how many expats had made the journey to London, I met up with Dianne from quiltova at Stansted and we trained it upto town together.
I made wonky blocks with Betty, Nicole and I were next to each other in the wonderful Tacha's EPP class (Don't ever ask her to cut you any diamonds)
and Christine and I shared quite a few beers as we were in the same hotel....
Di and Helen had loves the bees that were showing quilts and asked a few of us to get together to become *sew euro-bee-an* lolol... a group of expats throughout UK and Europe
I was in two minds whether to join or not, I'm not an accurate person and was worried my work wouldn't be good enough, I get stressed with swop items and swore I was never joining a round robin or mini quilt swop again... so what did I do.... Join the bee... lolol..
Helen has kicked us off and based her idea on sea glass....those lovely smoothed pieces of glass in soft colours that you can pick up on beaches all over the world.
She wanted us to go modern, (impro) and also use 9 patches using 1 or 1.5" squares, she also gave us kona solid for a border.
Here's my 12" blocks ready to pop in the post
