The Bumblebee Quilt

Bumblebee fabrics are due in stores this January and if you are looking for a spring project The Bumblebee Quilt pattern might be just the thing.
This pretty quilt uses gentle curves to make units that once joined together create a lovely hour-glass pattern waving serenely down the quilt.

The Bumblebee quilt is designed by Tone Finnanger. Explanations and step by step illustrations are made by the talented Linda Clements.

Clamshell Cushion

It’s always nice to find ideas on how to use those fabric scraps left over from other projects and Red Brolly’s clamshell cushion is just perfect.

Notice how several leftover pieces are sewn together on some of the clamshells. That way all the smaller scraps can be used for this project, and we think it makes the cushion more interesting.
A really sweet and useful scrap project.
