More Bee Night Fun

Last night was another great Bee night.  Only four of us here but we had a lot of fun and productive.

Mom was sewing on four patches to use in her quilt as you go project.
Suzanne is hand piecing a patriotic quilt with block patterns from the original 13 colonies.
The block in progress.
Not only did she hand piece, she hand traced the pattern and made templates for the block.  What a girl!
Susan is working to finish her basket quilt.  Tonight she was piecing the setting triangles.  She is piecing nine-patch blocks to be cut for the setting triangles.
Susan having trouble cutting a perfectly good nine-patch block into quarter square triangles.  "Why cut up a perfectly good block".
The quarter square triangles look wonderful cut from that 9 patch block. 
Lastly I had some orphan blocks left over from my Stars Over Carolina quilt.  I decided to try using the dancing nine's layout and see what happened.  I think this will turn out to be a great Quilt of Valor.  I'm putting a small blue inner border then piecing a scrappy red, white and blue 3 1/2 x 6 1/2 inch brick border to finish it off. 
 Off to work this morning.  Hope you have a great quilting day.
