Bee Welcome


Speaking of Hospitality Symbols, here is a hexagon welcome quilt I designed in QuiltCanvas.
I hope it conveys a fun welcome message, and is equally fun to construct:)

The 10 pink alphabet fabric themed patches on the left side of pattern should be fussy cut with an alphabet fabric or embroidered to say, BEE (across) W-E-L-C-O-M-E (down).

QuiltCanvas is so clever, it gave me some fun choices for the bees' striped fabric from the "fabric database," and then I was able to spin the stripes in the right direction with the "Fill Manipulation" tool. [BTW when I signed in QuiltCanvas with my old Threadbias account, it had saved my stash fabrics from Threadbias!]
TIP-  How to make an EPP map in QuiltCanvas: 
Use the "Tiling" feature to make a row of hexagons, then copy and paste the row until you have a set of 4 rows, then copy and paste the set to complete your design size.

This project is for Paper Pieces 1" Hexagons (#HEX100) and will finish 26.5"W x 38"H.
