QBee Birthday Bash!

I took this photo yesterday morning from the front deck ... what a lovely way to begin a wonderful dillydally day!
We met for brunch to celebrate QBee Val's birthday!  That's the Birthday QBee with a table runner she recently finished and brought for show and tell!  It is lovely!
QBee Barb brought a table runner that she recently finished piecing!  It is a kit she picked up last summer while on our MN Shop Hop adventure!  Gosh ... we all fell in love with it.  Barb said she lost count of all the right triangles involved ... they are in the hundreds ... we all fell in love with it!  Beautiful!
QBee Terry wowed us with her Cathedral Stars!  It was pieced and had borders on!  We were all inspired to get busy on our own!  We all have such fond memories of our time with Bonnie Hunter ... it is fun to celebrate one of us finishing her quilts together!
Val shared with us a birthday gift she gave herself ... a gorgeous quilt kit called Bella Verona.  The fabrics are so beautiful ... seeing them and touching them immediately turns you to mush!  Yes ... mush!  They are that stunning!  The pattern is completely pieced ... we all cannot wait to watch Val create this masterpiece!
Valerie with her gifts and birthday cake!  The cake was a Paula Deen recipe ... it was delicious!
Those of you who have read this blog for a while, know that I make the Birthday QBees the same gift an entire birthday cycle.  
Here is Valerie's gift of the Sewing Cup Cozy!  I love making these!  They now take me about an hour ... from cutting to sewing on the buttons!  It is fun to make!
Later in the afternoon, Valerie shared the progress she has made on her Cathedral Stars!  It too is yummy and inspiring!

Celebrating with QBees ... what a wonderful dillydally day!
Do what you love!  Do dillydally!
Mrs. DillyDally
