Goodies from the Bee

Since I haven’t made it back upstairs again to work on quilt blocks again, I thought that I would share some of the show-and-tell that was brought to our Charity Bee yesterday.

Most days we are madly working on quilts for various organizations, but yesterday several people brought in new things to show.

Phyllis started us out by showing a pin cushion that she was given for Christmas…..

She then told us of the massive cup and saucer collection that her recently deceased Aunt had held.  She and her sister have decided to use these sets to make pin cushions for all of the cousins.   They are using trims and goodies from their own Mother’s collections to trim the cushions…..

Such a fun gift to give and how much fun would it be to receive one!!!

 

Then Sue pulled out two quick quilt tops that she made this past week.  The first one was made with this block…

….one 8 inch square, three 4 inch squares and one 4x8 inch rectangle.

They made up into a cheerful, “thoughts of summer” quilt……

The second quilt that she brought was another easy pattern

Just what we all need…..more ideas of things to do!!!

What a wonderful idea to use the cups as pincushions. They will make beautiful gifts.
