Finally a finish!

I have finished my Hipbee quilt, and I love it

Back in November it was my turn to be queen bee and I didn't really have a plan in mind, or  fabrics that I really wanted turning in to a quilt

I remembered the rainbow  charm squares that I had from a swap organised by Cindy, and it seemed like the perfect way to use them and some of my stash
The pattern came from Quiltville (again!) and my bees made an awesome job of putting the blocks together
I used backing from Last Sew and Sew, from a £5 per metre sale they had and the binding is non quilting fabric from my lqs

I hand quilted it using lots if different colours of thread and I love how that has worked out and how it reflects the different patterns within the pattern

It isn't completely finished, I still need to sew my siggy blocks into a label and get it sewn on to the quilt, I will probably be doing that in the sunshine today

A massive thank you to my Hipbee ladies for their input into this quilt.  Linking up with Katy over at the finish along


  1. It's beautiful! I love all the hand quilting.

  2. I've said before how great an eye you have for seeing how a block will look repeated in a quilt. This was a great choice - love your quilt and the quilting is a fantastic compliment to the pattern. So pleased to have been part of it.

  3. I love how the hand quilting accentuates the diagonals, great choice of pattern too.

  4. It's brilliant! You're so good at getting your bee quilts finished. Jxo

  5. It is beautiful! Love all the colours together.

  6. This is fantastic! I love the combination od colours with the black and white. Congrats to you and your bee :)

  7. Lovely job all, and yay finishes!


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a message
