    I hope I’ll find the time to participate, because I love this BOM. Could you tell me if it’s possible to use fat quarters for the green, yellow and pink and if yes, how much would I need? Thanks in advance

    My husband & I have friends that are Bee keepers. This will be so much fun to make for them. Each time he harvests, We buy or receive as a gift the wonderful fresh honey. I am so excited to make this quilt. Love your site and all of your wonderful ideas and projects.

    I like making full to queen size quilts. My sewing machine won’t handle anything larger and it’s to hard on me due to physical issues to try.

    I sincerely hope I can join the Art of Home Club. I have had opportunities before but, didn’t do so. I would love to now… You are truly gifted creatively and I would like to be a member. The fee is minimal compared to other people’s clubs and, I really love this particular BOM. I hope I hear back soon!
