Community Quilt 74

16 04 2013

Another quilt using yellow thread! I’m on a roll…

This one was a cute bee and honey quilt. Not only were there bees on the front, there were bees all over the back too. But how to quilt it?

I could have gone for stylised bees or flowers, but having never done bees before, I thought that would be a bit much. Flowers? Meh. And then I saw the little hives. They gave me inspiration for doing my geometric, ‘flat end’ version of the ‘open headband‘ motif. I was pleased with how it turned out.

Again, this was an all-over, edge-to-edge design that puts me into that ‘zen zone’ 😉
