Bea is the quilt maker for the Thimble Family. She has made quilts for her brother Yarn and his wife Pearl, and for Bobbin and Mendy, her great-nephew and great-niece. The square on which she is now working will be for a nice king-size quilt, and will be given as a wedding present to some lucky couple. Like the insect depicted on the Norwegian coin, she’s a busy bee. When she needs help in stitching the quilt, she’ll ask the other thimble-hatted family members to join the quilting Bea.
