It's Printed Bee Time!!!

I love December, not only is it Christmas, but its also my birthday on Dec. 7th (and I'll be 60 this year!!!) but best of all, its my month for the Printed Bee! Golly, it's just so exciting!
My theme was sunflowers, with their rich colours and cheerful disposition, they seemed like a great choice to challenge all the Bee artists!
So, here's the picture of all the fabrics made for me.....

I'll add the missing ones as they arrive.
As usual I'll be sending out a selection of 6" squares from all the artists to one lucky winner. All you need to do, is to add a comment below and tell us how you would use the squares in a new project for 2015! I'd love to hear from you, and I'll draw a name on Dec. 15th......
BTW, did you see the great article about the Printed Bee and our inspirations in the latest issue of Quilting Arts Magazine?

Good QuiltArt article. I've enjoyed all the printed bee challenges and want to start printing my own, using the challenge ideas. Thanks

Happy Birthday Susan! Your sunflowers will soon be on their way!

Happy birthday Susan! Another great collection - would love to win & would probably make a small wall quilt with them.

Saw the article...that's how I eventually landed here! Sunflowers are among my very favorite things! Can't imagine using all of these fabrics in one piece, instead, probably a series of mini-quilts, each inspired by the individual fabric! Thanks for the giveaway!

Hi Susan... What a stunning theme and the results prove everyone loved it! This group focuses on the skills that are so valuable to all of us and are definitely willing to share the many tips and techniques we all need to make great art cloth! Your idea bloomed into some really stunning small masterpieces! Can't wait to see how the artists use their own pieces after the donation to the Fabric Bee! Thanks!!

These wonderful fabrics would make a great late summer early fall table runner. All of the artists have so much imagination. I am always inspired by them.

If I should ever be so fortunate as to win this set of sunflowers, I'd make a wall hanging for my kitchen. I already have a few sunflowers in the wallpaper in my nook, but a wall hanging would be the perfect complement to the crop of sunflowers I plan to grow next summer, courtesy of a Facebook friend who has promised to send me a mix of seeds from the most glorious bunch of sunflowers I have ever seen.

At first I was seeing a quilt but then I could see some framed art.

Lovely idea and great fabrics. I recently designed a pattern that uses focal blocks nicely; I would probably make a variation of that quilt with the pieces. Would be a real challenge to pull all the colors together!
