Stash Bee April - I'm Queen Bee!

* For all my non Stash Bee followers this is what is happening in April for me over in Stash Bee *

Hi my Little Worker Bees it's Rebecca here aka OneWeeBird...your April Queen Bee!

Just a very quick Bio for those of you who are unfamiliar with me LOL

I am a 40 something Mum of 3 Boys 21, almost 17 and 15, and an energetic wee girl who will be 3 this June.
I have been quilting for about 13 years on and off but have really only immersed myself   (read "bought ALL the fabric") in the last few years since the Modern fabric movement consumed my soul!

This is my second year in Stash Bee and I LOOOOOVE it!!

My block for you has actually changed from my first plan as I really wanted to follow Genevieve's lead and get you guys to help me finish a WIP instead of starting a NEW one.

Introducing my Spiderweb blocks circa 2011.....ridiculous!!

I made 28 blocks and they have just sat and sat and please help me finish them and make a gorgeous quilt!


I have not re written the Tutorial as it is already concisely and clearly written BUT I HAVE CHANGED THE DIMENSIONS

My block is 10" finished so you will start with an 11 1/4" Square.

Use any White Fabric you have on hand, as white as possible would be great not cream or ivory please, but it doesn't have to be a particular brand.

Fill your boots when it comes to the strings...the brighter the better! Raid your scrap bin!

Please press the seams open if you don't mind?

Here's the tutorial, any questions please email me

My question for you is " If you could go back to your 18 year old self what, if you could, would you retrain as? Or choose as your perfect career?"


  1. I love it! So bright and beautiful!

  2. Ooh, gosh, good question...I only ever wanted to be a primary school teacher and haven't regretted that decision...if I could go back and re-train, maybe as a quilter!!


Thanks for saying Hi........give me a day or so and I will say Hi back and answer any questions you may have....have a great day :)
