Don't Look Now Applique Bee

The first meeting of the Don't Look Now applique bee was held on January 8th.  Everyone got right to work tracing and fusing their projects. Here they are:

Ann's Love Birds pattern. Love the fun, bright flowers:

Catherine's Little Monsters pattern. Naturally, Catherine will be adding scotty dogs, and not monsters, to her version. Can't wait to see it in black, white and red!

Cheryl is very ambitious!  This is her Meg's Garden pattern:

Debbie chose a pillow project. Here is her pattern, How Does Your Garden Grow?:

Here is the beginning of Debbie's pillow. She is using a creamy linen background and gorgeous dyed fabrics. She is inspiring all of us to make this pillow, too.

Shirley is doing a great quilt with flowers and cats. Her pattern is Rainbow Lollipops:

I chose a smaller project - just a pillow for me. Although, I won't be surprised if it turns into a wall hanging. My pattern is called Memories:

Here are my fused shapes. Can't wait until next time to start stitching them down!

Thanks to Shirley for sharing the photos!

Ask anyone who was there and I bet they will recommend starting or joining a bee - we are having the time of our lives!!
