Bee Inspired Bonus BOM

This BOM has now finished, patterns can be purchased from

This is the first appliqué pattern that I ever wrote.  I am offering this as a bonus BOM this year so that if the wheels fall off as they had a tendency to do last year with my health and life in general you will still get a pattern each month, and with any luck I will be able to get ahead with the 2016 BOM and you should get 2 patterns each month.

As with my previous BOM's the patterns are free for 1 month (or until I post another block) and then previous BOM patterns are for sale for $3.00 at my website where you can also get the patterns for all the BOM's that I have designed as well as some of my stand alone patterns.

Ok, never mind. It says I am already following you. Guess I need to check my spam folder. 😀

Thanks so much for sharing this Susan, when I first saw you offer this quilt I was enchanted with the chance to sew it. Now to add to my list of appliqué to do.
