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.
