Day 25 of my Virtual Trunk Show

Bee Blocks featuring “Bee Creative” by Deb Strain 2015.

The next three days will be “Bee” quilts (because this trunk show is alphabetical) and are a good demonstration of the difficulty in choosing names for patterns. Sometimes I can come up with something interesting that may mean something to me and I will think “That is really clever, Barb. Well done” Other times the name results like this: “This quilt is made with bee fabric. It’s a bunch of blocks. Why don’t I call it Bee Blocks.” Sometimes I forget that I have already used a name until after I have sent covers to the distributors requiring a quick retiring of a previous pattern or the adding of the year onto the end like: Into the Woods 2017. Sometimes I name the pattern after the fabric line (Spoiler Alert: Day 26 and 27) Bee Blocks measures 68” x 80” and is an easy all pieced pattern with no appliqué.
