Honey Bee

Has it really been two weeks since I last posted???  Makes me sad to think I haven't been quilting that much, as I didn't think it had been that long.  I started working on the free Glam Clam pattern from Latifah Saafir, and using the Curve Master foot. (affiliate link)  I was making mine in yellows for a baby quilt, and finished sewing the clams by the next day.
Unfortunately, the applique and quilting got delayed a bit, but the whole quilt got finished up today.

Here's a full quilt picture.
The bees are in a hive full of honey, or they are on top of a flower seeking nectar.  Either way, they're pretty cute!

For the quilting, I did an open stipple all over with yellow Glide thread, then outlined the bees with Sulky invisible polyester monofilament.  First time I've used that on my Innova, and had no problems.  Here's the back, a nice soft yellow flannel.
And as for the bees, they're my own creation, in two versions.




Happy Quilting!

  1. been wondering where you were - but I figured Holiday stuff got in the way. I'm quilting my last Christmas top today. It's for hubby, so not a rush for customers :)

  2. Looks like a flower to me. If it was a hive, they'd be hexagons. (Can you tell we've got bees?)

    It's a gorgeous little quilt!

  3. Cute little quilt. It's good you can learn something new and make a finished quilt too. There will be one lucky baby snuggled underneath.
