{sew} beautiful bee quilt top (finally!)

Nov 9, 2012
Pin It A new quilt top finished!  Yay - it's been a while....  This is my {Sew} Beautiful Bee top from 2011.  It's the one I've had waiting for me for months.  So patiently....

 I used 3 charm packs of Bonnie & Camille's Ruby line, plus some old school Bliss thrown in with Kona PFD.  The sashing is Kona Ice Frappe.  And below is 6 yards of Ruby snuggly flannel.  Won't this be great for winter?
 The bee ladies all made 17" Dutch Pinwheel blocks using the charms.  These blocks are huge!   Each block has a major and minor color.  The Minor color was used on the inside pinwheel and the major color was used on the outside frame of the block.
 These colors are looking gorgeous to me.  Since it is a year later though, I do wish I could include a little Vintage Modern too.
 It's off to my LAQ.  This baby is a little bigger than a twin - and too big for me to enjoy doing on my home machine.  And right now with the little ones, I haven't much time to go to my LQS to use the long-arm there.  So, I wait to get it back for binding.
But it sure feels good to check off a WIP/UFO and to be getting back into the swing of things.  :) Pin It

  4. It is stunning! The flannel backing is such a great idea. When you show the quilt finished please show the back too. Your quilt is wonderful.
