I'm always trying to come up with new and innovative ideas in quilting.  Using the last  Group of Eight Fibre Artists challenge "Secrets" I wanted to produce a piece that contained a secret code of some kind.  I came up with the idea of using squares to represent vowels and rectangles to represent consonants.  Using black "letters" I stitched the first paragraph from the book The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd.  

It was machine quilted in a honeycomb or grandmother's flower garden shape, and a queen bee embellishment was added.
