Quilting Buzzing Bees

August 28, 2014


I had the opportunity to quilt one of the sweetest quilts recently.  It was a sampler quilt with so many bright, cheerful fabrics, depicting all the different seasons.  I went searching to see what this quilt is, and it looks to be part of the Quilty Fun Sew Along & Blog Tour for Lori Holt’s book Quilty Fun (affiliate link).




As I do with most of my quilting requests, I sent along several quilting ideas that I thought might work for this top.  Secretly, I usually have one in the bunch that I hope the clients picks, and this quilt was no different.  I was really hoping Callie would choose the little bee’s, and I think it was the perfect choice for the quilt, so i’m glad she agreed.


It’s always hard to send home such beautiful quilts.  I could easily see this one displayed in my quilting studio.  Perhaps one day I will take the time to make one for myself.

This lovely quilt was pieced by Callie Applestine and quilted by me with buzzing bees.
