Many years ago, my quilting guild sponsored Pat Sloan to teach at my LQS. My LQS has changed locations twice since then, so you know it's been taking me a while to finish this. LOL! The pattern is dated 2006, so it's not too bad, timewise. Here's her original. Pat had us make the entire background first and then applique over the large background. Since I'm not much of an applique girl, it took me a while. And then, since I'm not much of a hand-quilter, it took even longer!
There are bees! I have a small bathroom done in bees, but that's another blog post for the future.
