Meet my friend Bee Bettencourt. I met "the Bee Lady" at a the Shining Tides Quilt Guild in Mattapoisette, MA. Bee had also worked with me at the Quilters by the Sea show in Portsmouth, MA. She stands out from the crowd with her bubbly personality and always a bee on her clothing somewhere. When I lectured at the Shining Tides Guild, I remembered Bee immediately from the Portsmouth show. I have been back to her guild to lecture three times, and each time Bee delights me with her positive attitude and kind spirit. Bee is a beautiful lady and a creative quilter! I aspire to be just like her when I grow up. Bee made this original quilt for her son who is a truck driver. I asked her if I could share some photos of the quilt. She beamed with pride as she told me about the quilt and about her son, Micheal. Bee has added special touches throughout the quilt to honor her husband and to remind her son of the quilter who loves him. You can find a photo of her son in the window of his truck, his dog in another, and a beehive in the tool compartment! Bea added all the scenery that he drives by each day, especially the shore and seagulls that are so common along the Massachusetts coast. I just adore this quilt Bee, and the thought and love that went into making it for your son.
