Sorry about the crappy picture, but wind and light made it to where I did not want to go outside to take a picture. I have my first two rows of the Bee Happy Quilt sewn together.
I am still behind with the quilt along, but I feel like I have made some serious progress.
I have been digging into my scrap bins and stash to find the perfect fabrics for the blocks. My version is more scrappy than Lori Holt's, but as far as I am concerned the more scraps used the better. As Lori says, "You are the boss of your quilt!"
Do you see the skull and crossbones flag? I need to add the embroidery on the dog's face
and the bee's details.I was not sure about mixing the backgrounds on this quilt, but the variety adds another dimension.
Whoops, not the best job centering the cherries!
I love the mix of simple blocks with more elaborate ones.
All of the embroidery details are so precious!
What can I say? I am in love with this one.
I also have some secret sewing for Fat Quarter Shop I am working on this month! I was thrilled to be invited to sew for them and receive gorgeous fabrics for my project...My deadline for my completed project is November 1st, so I am actually going to make it my October One Monthly Goal (OMG). Check out other goals here:
My secret project will be revealed here on my blog and on my Instagram on November 3rd. Check out sneak peeks on Instagram #fqsquiltalong
