Monthly Wrap Up

Wow! It’s been a busy month at the Patchwork Breeze studio!

Bee Kind Fabric Line

This week I’m posting the small project I’ve sewn to help Swan (of promote her new line of Island Batik fabrics called “Bee Kind”. Swan was kind enough to send some smaller cuts of fabrics and I created this colorful, fun bib. The free pattern I used came from National Quilter’s Circle with an email sign-up. I’ve sewn this pattern many times using one large piece of fabric, and have been very happy with the results. The batting used in the middle can be made from scraps patched together, too!

Swan’s blog on September 30, 2022, will be about the Bee Kind fabric line and she’ll show some other projects she’s made with it.
