This Busy Little Bee is ready to "Bee"-gin Stitching!
There are so many cute details on this block it will take a while to see them all! There's the "tomato" pincushion perched so sweetly at the top of the Hive, the threaded needle and the little patch of fabric that's stitched on. Plus there's a "real-looking" ruler and a big spool of thread that serve to showcase this special little Bee hive. Wouldn't this block make into a sweet sewing tote for a friend...or yourself?
Part of the personality of this block are the specialty fabrics we used in the house. The Spool of Thread and the realistic Ruler are "must haves"! You can purchase them and all the other specialty fabrics used in the quilt blocks in the "Honey Bee Lane" Accessory Fabric Packet(ITEM #Honey Bee Lane 107)! Melissa and Arlene designed this fabric and others in the quilt just so you can have your block look like theirs!
