Quilts for Honey Man’s Peeps, Boy-yo, Blogger’s Quilt Festival

A very warm welcome to the intrepid travelers from the Blogger’s Quilt Festival, Fall 2011.  I hope you enjoy your stay.  The talented Amy at Amy’s Creative Side is the lovely hostess for this celebration of quilting.

Queenie’s husband, Honey Man has bevy of loving peeps in his family, two of which have entered the wonderful adventure of parenthood.  A niece peep and loving husband have two girls, the best friend sisters; and one boy, Boy-yo.  A nephew peep and loving wife have a girl, princess.  In honor of each special peepling, Queenie created an original, one-of-a-kind quilt made with love. 

Today let Queenie tell the tale of the quilt for Boy-yo, the first born grandboy-peepling in the family.

The quilt is based on the “bugs in a jar” quilt block which I then adventured into a flight of fancy in fine Queenie tradition.

Once upon a time in a timeless land of farmyard lore and unending harvest, a young boy collected his treasures and dreams in old mason jars saved by the ancient to foster imagination in the young.  As the boy’s collection grew beyond the underside of his bed he searched the enchanted farmyard for a safe place for his dreams and treasure. He talked with all the animals of the farmyard large and small, pleading his plight. The cows and horses said “nehhhh and noooo.”  The pigs squalled with laugher, rolled in their wallow, snored and ignored. It was the hens and their hearts soft with love who gave of themselves as all loving mothers do.
Their coop now the place of little boy dreams and treasure held with jars for imagination in a house of love.      

Coming soon… the best friend sisters quilts and the princess quilt.

Have a great day!
Always, Queenie Believe

Lots of fun in this quilt. It looks great.

I love your story! (And I had to giggle about the "ancients" and their Mason jars...) And I love the idea of the bug jars with something other than bugs. So creative and I'm sure any little boy would love it. Heck, I'm a grown woman and I'd love it!
