Twitter Bee Quilt .... My first Bee Quilt :)

My first quilting bee journey that began here and ended here is now complete!  I sewed together the top and started hand quilting on Columbus Day weekend (October 8th) and finished shortly before Christmas.  It was fun quilting each star a little differently and ended up making some squares in between each block.  I love the final look and think this quilt is bound to be one of my favorites.

Long and Lean ... 35" X 58"
It's so cool imagining each square being crafted in the home of another quilter and from fabric that was scraps from her previous projects.  Kinda makes me feel like this quilt has some history already ... ya know what I mean?  Definitely a favorite.

Two slightly different creams on the back.  I am trying to show off the hand quilting here. 

Now ... on to my favorite month of the year


  1. Super fab, Molly! I love how you arranged the blocks - the centre row especially. And the hand quilting is marvelous. I feel calm just looking at it! Happy New Year!

  2. Hi Molly! I am way late in seeing tis post, but I just wanted to say "hi" and that I love how you did this. Sounds like it was a fun bee. Glad to see you are still and quilting. This quilt looks great!
