Today Wally took Allie out to hang out with his brother for a couple hours... and I managed to get my cousin Lindsey's quilt top finished!! This is my bee quilt from this year! :) 

I'd had the sashing all cut, and the blocks trimmed and pressed... the only thing holding me back was determining the layout of the blocks! I decided to wing it and it turned out alright! I'm loving this quilt top!

I was about to piece together the back - but realized I'm a yard short for backing fabric! Ahh! lol. So I need to look around and find some solid yellow - I think Kona Canary will do it. The quilt top measures 60" x 79" Exactly as planned! Again I'm going to tell you, that this method (click on "Adding Borders") of adding borders really works perfectly. Thanks Ebony for sharing the knowledge!


  1. The quilt looks awesome! Loving the colour scheme! =D

  2. I really love the fabrics and the layout - can't wait to see it all quilted up! Also, thanks for the tip to visit LoveBug Studio.. I never thought I could afford long-arm quilting services, but this looks reasonable!

  3. Love the colors in this one - beautiful, Emily!

  4. What a beautiful quilt, it's gorgeous!

    I received the 2 yards of fabric I won on the Bella Solids Parade, thanks so much for hosting, the fabric is just delicious!

  5. I love the colors in this quilt! I can't wait to see it all finished up :)
