WeeBee fun

We had another fun time at our WeeBee meeting yesterday!  Here are a few pictures from show n tell, one of my favorite parts of the meetings.  We had two new members join us, one of them loves working by hand.  She shared her Balm of Gilead quilt with us...
I didn't know the balm of gilead was a real plant!  She found a picture and transferred it to fabric with fusibles, and she also outline quilted the plant in red-work fashion.  Here's a closeup:

Isn't that lovely? 

Pat shared her wickedly easy quilt; I think I like hers more than the one I made for my niece! 

Pat also finished a quilt from a crazy patch exchange:

beautiful blocks; I missed that one but I'll be in on the next one!

And of course we had great goodies, as usual...

Good friends, good quilt eye-candy, and good food - always a winning combination!  I'd like to have gotten more pictures but my batteries died and I didn't have extras    :o*(

The weather here is a bit wonky, today is so overcast.  A bit chilly, a bit rainy - but we need the rain!  Have a great Sunday... sew forth and sew on til later.


  1. Sounds like a wonderful day you had Linda! I am not familar with the Balm of Gilead plant either..but of course have heard of it from the Bible. I love hand work myself, so that caught my attention right away! ♥♥♥

  2. ou summed up that day very well. What fun to add new members, too.
