A Little Bit of Sunshine

Well, I'm certainly not talking about the weather at the moment, grrrr! 
The sunshine I'm referring to is the wonderful Strip Bee quilt top that landed on my doorstep a few weeks ago, which is bright, sunny and yellow.  I'd love to share it with you, but as all the quilt tops (6 in total) are going to be a surprise for each member of the Bee, I'm only allowed to show you little sneek peeks. 
And for the first time since I can remember, I actually managed to start a project and finish it in one day.  Here I am blogging about it too - amazing!  (My son was at nursery - did you guess??!) 

It turns out that sunny yellow was not a colour that I had enough of in my stash.  So in the interests of the Bee (ha ha) I purchased several yellow fat quarters to compliment all that sunshine in the other strips.  It was so fun to work with and great to use different colours. 

I'm gutted that I can't share my whole strip with you because I'm actually quite pleased with it.  I guess that will have to wait until the big reveal in a few months time.  
Thank you by the way for all the get well messages for my children.  My son is now fighting fit and causing the usual mayhem, and my daughter, well she's still not great, (I'm suspecting Tonsillitis) so it will probably be another day on the sofa resting for her tomorrow :-(  I'm just hoping everyone's fit and well at the weekend! 
Thanks so much for stopping by.  Linking up with the lovely Liz:

  4. I love these sneak peaks. The Bee quilt is such good fun, but oh my! I'm going to be way out of my comfort zone trying to follow those colours !

  5. Having been in a round robin bee where the stitching is secret I know the feeling of wanting to reveal all but it's so fun when the tops arrive!! Lovely happy sunny colours :)
