Freda's Hive Family Retreat

15 comments
The hive has been so busy in September.  Last weekend was my annual retreat for family members and it was fun and wonderful to be with family.  I regret I didn't take the time to take many photos.  We were so busy and the time just flew by.
Good food is always part of the fun.  Everyone pitches in.  Cake is a big part of the tradition.
My niece Tricia finished her Freda's Beehive quilt.  It turned out great Tricia. 
My sister Michelle made a queen sized Beehive quilt for her bedroom at the ranch.  This will look perfect on her bed.
My sister Polly made a table topper from her hives.  Super cute I think.  My niece Tana hasn't finished her project yet but is well on her way.  And my sister Teri finished her pillow case from the ranch this past summer.  Darn.  I didn't get photos of those projects.

A great time was had by all.  I always look forward to getting together with the girls in the family.

Morning Nanette... That must be your home in the background. I love the yellow walls. I want a Freda's bee hive table topper too!! Is that bee fabric in the corner's of Polly's quilt? It's a pattern you sell, right? Thanks for the photos!

I think the Hive quilt is a perfect project for your family to work on together as a rembrance and tribute to Freda. How fun that you all get together to quilt.
