Just over twelve months ago I was invited to join my first ever bee by my namesake Di (one "n"). I was so pleased to be asked, although a little daunted by the talented ladies I was to be joining! We had to pick a theme for our quilt - mine was pinwheels, any shape or size, placed randomly within the block. We also had to pick a signature fabric that would appear in all the quilts. You might remember mine from long, long ago. The scallop on the large pinwheel was my signature fabric.
Then I put it in an envelope, stamped it, and sent it of to Hadley. And that's the last I saw of it, till now. Over the next twelve months each of the other ladies made a block (just for little old me!) and send them to Hadley, who had the job of making her block, then joining them all together. Obviously this was going on with all the other 7, and we never saw one glimpse of what people were making for us. It's been a real tease!
The 8 of us have been pretty excited this last month, knowing that after 12 months, we were finally getting to see what everyone else made, in a finished quilt top. So without further ado, but with a long pause like they do on Strictly, here's my quilt

It is exactly what I wanted, and even better than I imagined it would be! There are so many different pin-wheels and you've got the colours just right for me. Thank you so much all you clever ladies (in no particular order!)
It's amazing that just 8 people could come up with such different ideas. We are all revealing our own quilts today, so I recommend you do a quick blog hop and check them all out. If you can come back tomorrow, I will be showing you all the blocks that I made for the other bee-ers.
