It is show-n-tell at the Wee Bee Quilters meeting and what lovely creations has the girls been up to lately, well it is Ellie the Elephant.  Everyone wants a Ellie for their very own.

Here is Emma Mixon


Here is Linda Saunders


and Loretta Tatum


I am sure that more Ellie’s will be popping up in 2015.

Presentation:  Patricia King presented a Signature Quilt to Carolyn Burgess at our November meeting with these words:

To: Carolyn, a friend and fellow quilter, we love and cherish the  time we spend together.  I could not  think of no better tribute to make to you, than  to use your own words.

“Often we don’t say things because we always think we have time to say them.  Then after that someone is gone we think specifically about that person and think of so many things we could have, should have or would have said.  We’re going to say them now while we’re all here and can benefit from the words.”

Carolyn was so surprised she did not even no we were even presenting the quilt to her.



Gwen showed off her granddaughters bed roll for school.


Loretta finished her Black History quilt.  Love the backing fabric on this one.


Charlene Marshall showed of two color variations of the Reflection quilt she is working on for a friend at the center were she teaches quilting.  The first one is for a girl and the other a boy.  Great color choses.   


Not sure who’s quilt this is might be Pat JohnsonSAM_0233SAM_0234

Linda McKenzie              Gwen Jackson


These are quilts from the October meeting, do not know who is hiding behind them.


That is all for now. 

Reminder:  That some of use will be meeting in December on our regular day and time.

Family Day 2014–Quilts In The Gym

Because of the off and on rain last Saturday, we had to improvise by hanging the quilts in the Gym of North Michigan Park Recreation Center for this years Family Day.  Although it was a challenge, the Wee Bee Quilters won this challenge of hanging quilts the best way we could.
As you can see below we had them even hanging off the bleachers.
Here are the 10th Anniversary Quilts
I was so busy working the small grill outside, that I did not get as many pictures as I would have liked with all the girls in the gym.  We had a surprise visit from our long lost sister Nadine Mills (did not get a picture of her).  She here for a month or two, we miss Debbra Murphy who is back in California.
I got a surprise from my father.
When I told him some of is McDonald friends were at the Family Day is showed up.  It was nice seeing him there.  He lives right down the street from me and see him every Sunday, but I really have not hung out with my dad in sometime.  Great to see him coming out.

If any of you Wee Bee Quilts out there have any inside photos of Family Day, please post them on our site. 
See you next month.

April News Letter–What’s Happening At The Bee


Great things were happening at the Bee last month announcements, visit from a past member, welcome make to the fold of a MIA member, and a bag class from one of our own.  So let us recap for last month.


 Who is that you say?  It is Mia Baker, one of our long time members who stop by to say hello.  She still has her Wee Bee Quilters shirt.  It was nice to see her again, and hope she will stop by again.


Well, there is no help for this blurry picture of Valerie Crawford, using a unknown camera, should have use the cell phone.  Anyway, we would like to welcome back to the fold the MIA member Val.  She has been working weekends, and was not able to attend the meetings, but always paid her dues.  We are glad she is off the weekend shift and able to join us again.


Another blurry picture of Rene Bailey who stop by to present a quilt to Carolyn Burgess for her contribution to the UHURH Quilters Guild.  Sorry no picture of the quilt still have camera problems.  May be someone took a picture and will send it to me for the end of year photo gallery.


Here is Lynora Williams, the BEE gave her a gift card to congratulate her for receiving her  Master of Science Degree in Library & Information Science.

Below is some of the Red/White quilts that were done for a show, I think was 2 years ago.  We are hoping to display these quilts in Columbus, Ohio at a one day church exhibit around July.  If you have anything red/white you would like to send, please contact Carolyn Burgess.

I was having camera trouble and was taking pictures with my cell phone.  These are some of the blocks from our 10th Anniversary swap.  You can see more of them on Linda’s blog, just click on her name.  Everyone rushed home to figure out how they will put their anniversary blocks together.  I myself went home and cut them down to size, and have not looked at them since.  But, I have been making myself crazy by trying to find the right fabric color to use for sashing.


Yetude (Sandra Ealy) gave a class on this fun little bag.  She originally made this bag to carry her yarn in, but it is great for anything you want to use it for.  It was originally small put she blow up the pattern to make a medium and large bag.  She is with Lezetta giving her some tips of putting it together.













These little bags were made by Shirley Royal, to hold our utensils (forks, knives and spoons).  She got this idea from one of the UHURU Guild members and remembered how to do it and just made it.  Great member and great bags.  I see another class in the work for this.

Last is some pictures of show-n-tell.


 This could be a picture of the quilt present to Carolyn, but not sure.




Well, that is all for now.  See you this weekend.
