The honey bee block was the block of the month on the Quilting Board forum, using a pattern from the McCall’s Quilting web site.  It was offered at just the right time for me since my oldest daughter, Nancy, had just given me a beautifully embroidered piece to design a wall hanging.

I decided on a border using colors from the piece and four corners using the honey bee block.  The blocks were very small, about 3″, so I fused the yellow bee “wings” and zigzagged around them with invisible thread.  I like the wallhanging which gives a little different approach to displaying the embroidered piece other than framing.
