Mom's quilt


I finished quilting a top for my Aunt last week and today I'm loading this top of my Mom's. The block is called Honeybee and she used a beautiful set of fat quarters. After quilting this top, I still have one each of my Aunt's and my Mom's waiting to be quilted.

OH, and Mary, I'm not sure wehre you DH would be working...but you probably have to go out to the suburbs for more space...especially with having a longarm. The good news, GREAT bus schedules!!

What a gorgeous quilt, Mary--her fabric choices and your quilting.

I recognize the block but have seen it with a nine patch in the middle. This is so much better to allow her to showcase the fabric more--smaller pieces would not have allowed that.

Nice quilt! How are you going to quilt it? Are those "wings" hand appliqued... So much work... (Sayeth the lady who spent yesterday cutting 1 inch strips!)
