I want to do mine in jewel tones in honor of Autumn.

This is what you will recieve:

a.  please use all white thread

b.  Keep the Change - feel free to toss, share, or keep the scraps for your own stash.

c.  Add your own.  Yes you may.  If you have a fun fabric that matches the color theme you chose, feel free to add your own.  Variety is the spice of life, so thanks.

d.  if you see fabric from former bee blocks, please DO use them in the block you make.  I have been saving those bits all year long from your blocks.  So in this way it will be sort of a memory quilt for our BEE this year.
