    I belong to a quilting bee with 5 other ladies (well, sometimes we are!) It's getting time to think about Christmas gifts and I'd like to do something with a bumble bee on it - Remembering that I'll have to make 6 total. Any ideas will be greatly appreciated.
    thanks for a great group of quilters on this board :!:

    maybe a bumble bee felted pincushion?

    or a traveling needle/thread holder? (like a tri-fold wallet)

    I just got a quilt mag, that had "to-go" coffee cozies..

    I did some Happy Camper Potholders. One has a bee on it as per attached. Fun and simple and one of my indoctrination into quilting projects. Here's a pic.

    There is a free paper piecing bee pattern at:
    http://piecebynumber.com/honeybee.htm

    Maybe you can use it to make something. It is only a 3 inch block, but I'm sure you could enlarge it to whatever size you want.

    Our Bee (10 ladies) decided to each make 10 identical gifts to give to each other. Some of them were: Christmas aprons, a small framed picture of our group, tote bags, drawstring jewelry holder, kitchen towels decorated with a Bee (embroidery machine)small sewing kit, etc. Some came from the Dollar Tree and were embellished. It was lots of fun and not hard to do. Quilters make great friends. :-D

    I love the potholder idea. Can always use a new clean potholder! And a new kitchen towel, too. This sounds like a couple of winners to me.
    Thanks
