Beehive quilt finished!


Phew! This quilt, although relatively simple design, turned into a bit of a monster from its sheer size, and the number of nine patch squares around the edges. White linen was used for the backing, just in case my mother in law needs a break from the colour.



Thanks to all the girls from the Beehive, I don't think it would have been finished for my mother in law in time for Christmas if it wasn't for your sewing capabilities! She loves it and it takes pride of place on her bed in her holiday house by the sea.


I hope everyone had a good break over the Christmas / New Year period, and I look forward to catching up on all the latest in the quilting world. Bye for now, Bec x

Beautifully quilted, the colors sing to me and the idea of a sea cottage surrounding it creates a vision of loveliness.
