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.
