You may or may not have seen this picture that I have posted previously. By now this photo has been around Flickr, Pinterest, etc. What may not be apparent though is that this is only a photo of blocks I have made that I scanned into my computer to make this mosaic. I'm still playing with the design and have all along planned to make this quilt much larger than the 9 x 9 layout shown here. My goal with this quilt was to make each block special and personal with a theme of its own. The theme may be a color combination, a play on words, a person that I know, an event or anything really. My objective was that I wanted to create a quilt that was extremely scrappy with each block telling its own story.

Actually, they are all favorites! Here is a mosaic of the bee blocks all together, plus a few more that I made to fill in the spaces:
