Bee Joyful…

From Deb Strain…

I couldn’t “BEE” more excited to share “BEE Joyful” today. It debuted at Fall Market in Houston last November and it’s going to be on it’s way to shops any day now.

This is the third “BEE” inspired collection, presenting rich colors and bee-inspired prints that coordinate with BEE Creative and BEE Inspired.

The Bee Joyful panels show illuminated letters and scrolly borders in addition to bees and beeskeps.  I love painting this kind of design!

I love to draw these scrolly borders too… especially when I get help from Bella, our cat!

Coordinating patterns present everything “BEE.”

Included are gentle words and sayings about BEES, honeycombs, florals with bees buzzing throughout and a beeskep damask.

Barb Cherniwchan, of Coach House Designs always creates beautiful quilts for my collections, and I think the three projects for Bee Joyful are some of her best.

This “BEE-lightful” quilt she designed with the panel from BEE Joyful is going to be a quilt kit – it’s called “BUZZ, BUZZ” and will certainly BEE a favorite!

Barb has created two more amazing patterns using BEE Joyful, including one that includes three projects in one pattern. It’s titled Lattice Work and this is the big quilt in the pattern.

Barb used the panel to create these BEE-u-tiful banners – the pattern is Joyful Banners!

I’ve also designed some pretty products for the collection – notepads, journals, a metal BEE-basket and a BEE-tray.

Whether you are creating a heirloom quilt or a totebag, BEE Joyful is sure to inspire BEE-u-tiful creations!

  5. Looks like I’ll bee adding to my collection of bee fabrics. I love that the fabric will, hopefully, raise awareness to the plight of our native bees!

  6. Deb, would you be willing to share where you found the metal bees on your tray? Thank you so much, Margaret

  7. Oh my gosh, this is the MOST scrumptious fabric!!! We have a huge row of holly trees and right now they’re just a buzzing with honeybees from a nearby hive. I adore the sound of the bees busily focused on collecting their treasures! I think I need to get a bundle of the whole line. And then just pet it. LOL! Well done on this one!!! 🙂 ♥
