    Thank you for the article on “Labels”. Packed with good information. I feel strongly about labels and have done talks at our Quilt Guild and a Quilt Retreat on the subject.

    I am so excited to start the “SAVE THE BEES” journey !! My granddaughter is so into saving the bees, at a recent Family Reunion she gave all of us quite a speech on why we need to “save the bees!”

    This is so awesome! My first Bee Balm plant put on two flowers and there were two Bumbles out there having a good time.

    Thanks for the wonderful quilt patterns.

    So glad to read about the bloggers working with you on this BOM. I know there is more to just copying a pattern. Thanks for helping us feel more connected to the quilt community.

    Am I missing something on Fearless with Fabric? I cannot find her link to her version of Save the Bees, last years yes but this one, no. Fun blog hopping!

    I haven’t got around to block one yet, as I’m trying to be good and finishing of my current project I have been struggling with the flying geese, even if i oversize them I was still short on the top and believe me I thought I’d bought every ruler and tried every method I could find! I have just made my first stress free flying goose thanks to your tip! I could give you a great big hug, but your too far away and might find that weird! So I will just say a very big thank you. YOU ARE BRILL. Now before long I can get caught up Saving the Bees

    Thanks so much for the Save The Bees BOM. I think your Bee block 4 and the Baby Buzzy Bees at Ponduck Pretties are fabulous – my favorites! I visited all your associated bloggers! It was fun.
