Using just 50 rectangles and cutting them, fusing them, and quilting them, a kite was formed. This quilt formed itself – I started to put things together and all of a sudden I looked at what was happening and thought, “Oh, it’s a kite!” I wove wire with ribbon to create a flexible, formable tail.

We have a lot of fun, camaraderie, good food, creative projects.

Seven Scenes of Summer Seven Scenes of Summer
By: Rosmarinus Designs,

This quilt came about from a row-by-row that I did with my bee. When designing the layout, lots of pink and green, alligators all over the argyle background, the striped grosgrain ribbon all reminded me of my high school summer years. Most of the bee were Pentagon wives, hence the unusual layout.
