Starting in August Jacqueline Steeves is bringing us a brand new BOM called "Save the Bees". I have started sewing my blocks to share with you each month and am having a great time making my version of this wonderful pattern. You can get colour and fabric inspiration here.
My quilt will have a bee colour palette of gold, yellow, brown and black.
I love the BEE theme since I have been worried for a long time about our bees (and by "our" bees, I mean the bees belonging to the planet). It was reported in the spring that 7 of 10 Ontario Beekeepers "suffered unsustainable losses" which is described as the worst winter losses on record. Beekeepers are urgently advocating for pesticide bans - more info here. And click here to learn more about why we NEED bees.
