Progress on the Honeybee



Today's a better day and I'm making good progress on Mom's Honeybee. I had comments asking how I was going to quilt it so I thought I'd post a couple pictures.

In the large squares I'm doing a modified designs with lines pattern. Most of the fabrics are too busy to mark anything so I just chalk the registration lines and then quilt the feathers freehand.

The second picture is one of the leaves I decided on after ripping out the sashing quilting yesterday. They look much better.

Not sure what you had in there before that this looks like a good choice along with the free form feathers.

Hope the quilting is going better today.

I bet your Mom loves it. I don't know alot about long arm quilting,but I bet the free motion stuff is easier.

Mary, both designs are great! Your feathers are just right in the centers of those blocks.

nice quilting (I don't know what was in the sashing, but I like the leaves), I like the way you can see the applique stitches too - your mom did a nice job!
