This week we’re all about bees! What’s all the buzz about you ask? Well, not only are bees super cute and lovely to look at, they are amongst the most important creatures to humans on Earth and perform over 80% of all pollination worldwide.
Here are our favourite bee products, but beauty is in the eye of the bee-holder so let us know which one you like the most.

Once the top is pieced, there’s no binding to tackle as the front, back and wadding are sewn right sides together, turned through and topstitched. There’s no tricky machine quilting to deal with either: just tie and knot a thread at each intersection and in the centre of each square to hold the layers together. Simple!
