Reflecting on my quilting years I remembered my very first block was the honey bee. It was prophetic since my husband is now a beekeeper. Hmmm...how to combine the 2 trains of thought? The traditional honey bee pattern along side my growth as a quilt artist. I had a class with Judy Coats Perez where we painted audobon drawings and I used this knowledge to paint a honey bee! Don't look too close as I need lots of practice. Setacolor textile paint on cotton, free motion quilted, pieced, and appliqué.
