Victoria of London, England asked for this versatile framed block with a six inch center. She asked for applique or other embellishment, if we wished.
I appliqued a sewing machine and tiny quilt in the center to symbolize this bee that has brought us together as friends. Each one of the fabrics in the frame is a fabric that I have used in other blocks for this bee. This gives Victoria's quilt a connection to all of the other quilts in the bee. Her quilt is growing and is on the way to Southern California for it's next block.
I am glad these blocks went into the mail yesterday because Alex's block were waiting in the mailbox for me when I got home this afternoon!
We are a group of new friends enbarking on a journey together. Each of us have made a starter block. That block gets mailed to the next person, then the next, and the next until it has completed it's journey around the world and back.
