Blue Quatrefoil Quilt – A Finished Quilt

Finally got around to basting and quilting this quilt. I’m also happy to announce that this is Quilt Finish #6 for 2017! Woohoo!

It finished at 60″x 72″ so it’s a nice sized throw quilt and perfect for wrapping up on the couch with. I’m pretty happy with it, I must say! It is the result of my January Blossom Heart Bee Hive so I have 2 blocks each from 11 lovely ladies as well as 8 of my own in this quilt. I had hoped to have this finished in March but alas, March was such a busy month and I was unable to get around to completing it.

I spent two full days of my spring break working on this so that I could have it finished in April. Here are some more shots…

And, quilts look best with cute kids in the pictures, don’t you think? I happen to think this particular kiddo is one of the cutest ever!

 

 

A Quilt Story

Bee Blocks

Well, I went a little beehive crazy this year and ended up in FOUR hives! It’s a total blast, even if it is keeping me on my toes, making that many blocks every month. I have to say, I’m in some hives with some rock stars that have gorgeous block ideas so now I’m wanting to copy pretty much every idea for each block I’ve made for my hives this year.

Originally, I had the great idea that I’d post a monthly post, showcasing each block I made. It doesn’t look like that is going to happen though so I’m going to settle for just sharing a bunch of the blocks I’ve made so far! Here are most of the blocks I made for the months January-March. I’m missing one January block though as I forgot to get a good photograph of it.

So, yeah. That’s a lot of blocks. It’s been fun, I’ve made some blocks that I’m not certain I would have made before and have learned a lot! Boy though, it’s going to be a busy year of block making for sure!

One Monthly Goal – March

I’m going to join in Elem Street One Monthly Goal! I’ve linked up with monthly goal setting before and it was a great way to motivate me to finish a project every month!

So, here’s the plan for March. I want my January beehive quilt done!

I had plans to quilt it over Mardi Gras break but I did not have enough backing fabric so I quilted my Fizzy Quilt instead! Now it’s time to get this one done. I have the fabric I need so I have no excuse!

I’m excited about getting this one done!
