Once upon a time, in a land far, far away, there lived a group of royal quilters. They were a very clever bunch of quilters who delighted in making blocks for others and collectively called themselves the QCA Bee #2 (Quilt Club Australia Bee No 2).
It was Lady Quiltjane of the Kingdom of Brisbane that was to be the selector of a block for March 2012 and sent out a royal proclamation to all the kingdoms of the DownUnder Lands to make this special block. Each Lady of noble birth made a block (or sometimes 2) and sent them by royal carrier pigeon to the Kingdom of Brisbane.
