"Survivor Bee", Wanda's Quilt

Our "Survivor Bee" Season was unusual this year - to say the least! The competion started between the heroes and villians of past seasons. Our bee members were partnered with a TV player, who we cheered for each week. The first player/bee member to get the boot, was a winner of the fat quarter loot. Sadly this first player, Wanda, lost her battle from an unexpected illness and never saw or enjoyed her winnings.

With Alice's design, bee members donated time making blocks and/or fabric for sashing and borders. Mary Lea completed the assembly of the top, Carol and Rita handled the binding and Carolyn quilted her. What a beautiful gift to leave Wanda's family.

Stay tuned, I will be posting the runners up with their Idol blocks and the BIG Winner of the 1/2 yard Orientals later. I am hoping to snap a couple of pictures to share along with those posts!

Can't wait until next season -- Nicaragua here we come -- Alice, Beth, Betti, Bunny, Carol, Carolyn, Darlene, Donna, Geralyn, Jamie, Lynn, Mary Lea (host), Marlene, Melina, Nita, Rita, Robin and Wanda.
