Block Six with Freda’s Hive
Freda, my mom, made everything from our swimming suits to jeans and wedding dresses when I was growing up. She taught me how to sew and taught me just about everything else I know so I thought it was fitting that our blog be named in honor of her. The hive part is because of our big family and the fact that our home is always a buzz of activity. In a hive each bee has to work to contribute and I’ve always tried to teach my family that life is work and work is good. I have sewn since I was a girl and quilted for more than 12 years. I love designing patterns and creating quilts and projects. Creating is essential to my happiness. I hope you enjoy making my block. Thanks Konda for inviting me to participate. This Jelly Roll-A-Long has been really fun. In fact, this is the quilt we will be making at the Breton Girls Family Retreat in September when I get together with my sisters, nieces and my daughters to make a quilt. It is a great project for anyone and everyone.
Here’s where I am suppose to say, “Here are my blocks.” BUT I can’t. Here are Nanette’s blocks though!
REMINDER: You have two weeks to make these blocks. There will be a drawing tomorrow for block four. Of course, any block that is posted before mine (or Nanette’s) on flickr gets entered in the drawing. I have another jelly roll up for grabs and Emily has graciously donated one of her patterns. YEAH!
