Honey Bee Blocks

From the Lake Co Parks website:

Honey Bee Social

Deep River County Park Visitor Center Meeting Room

Fridays, August 6 and August 20
11 a.m. - 3 p.m.

Bring a sack lunch and drink. Come when you can to one or both days

Every year volunteers make a quilt from donated blocks to hand-quilt during the next season. This year we are asking for the “Honey Bee” quilt block; and since honey bees are social insects, we decided to have a HONEY BEE SOCIAL. We will meet some of our block donors, help novice sewers assemble their block, trade fabric swatches, and just have a good time. If you’d like to make a block, help others, need help yourself, or just want to meet and share a good time, come to the Park on one or both Fridays.

Supplies needed: Hand-sewing needles, Pins, Thimble, Scissors, Thread - white or beige, Iron-on fusible interfacing, Tape Measure

If you have fabric to bring, you will need the following: Flowered Fabric, Medium green leafy fabric, Light yellow tone-on-tone, Light Blue tone-on-tone, Black solid

Note: If you do not have fabric to use, packets will be available at the Social for purchase. A sewing machine will be provided, assistance will be given beginners, and blocks will later be assembled into a quilt top for the 2011 quilting bees.
