Most often I write only about my WIPs in my Finish Along Lists or other goal setting posts. All the progress pictures get posted on Instagram and then I forget to write in between blog posts.
This quilt had so much progress over the last days and most importantly I want to show you in details the beautiful fabrics my bee mates added into the mix. So for once we have a progress post :)
16 Days of Sewing
When I last mentioned this project, I was working on the layout. Since then I have sewn the top, the backing, basted and quilted my 2019 Bee Quilt. Yeah!
I am rarely this fast :)
Here are a few of the pictures:
Gorgeousness by my Bee Mates
So a big thank you to all my lovely bee mates. For sewing the blocks with my fabric but also for supplying blocks with so many beautiful additions :)
After my musings at yesterday #saturdaynightcraftalong about how to proceed with the quilting, I decided to stick to the original “zig zag” plan even though it meant a bit of quilt wrangling at about 30°/90F. I might have been very sweaty :)
But I am very happy that I persevered and didn’t jump to a faster solution. I love how it turned out!
Now I “just” need to decide on binding and finish…

I moved my website to a new provider and had problems in the beginning. They should be fixed. But if not, I need your feedback to know :)
Beautiful quilt! I love the front and the pieced back, it really is a true two sided quilt.
I love it! I also participate in a Bee and really enjoy getting everyone’s blocks in the mail. So fun!
This is a really beautiful quilt Mel. Your bee mates did a great job with the white blue and yellow fabrics. Was you block request for any type of log cabin block?
What a beautiful quilt! Not all bee-block quilts turn out so nicely! And I love all your wonderful photos. Take care, Mary.
