Last month I enrolled to take part in a 6 month BOM at my local quilt shop. It’s a really cute quilt called Honeybee Lane designed by The Quilt Company. I just love this pattern! It is the cutest!! It’s like it was made for me!
We have to opportunity to work on our block at the shop or take it home. I worked on mine last Sunday at home after picking it up the day before. I’m not much of a piece’r but I found this block to be easy. Even with that, I still didn’t get it finished, so I decided would work on it some more for FNSI.
So here is the block after last Sunday night…..
…..and here is as far as I got after Friday night.
It’s it the cutest? I still need to finish up the embroidery for the bee, the pincushion, and the patch.
The beehive pieces are flannel and so are the applique. All the applique parts were fused and machine sewn down. I don’t care much for raw edge so the pincushion, door, and patch have the edges turned under. The other parts are raw edge and I plan on using embroidery to cover the raw edges. I think the bee looks cute with the frayed edges so I’ll leave him fuzzy. I even rubbed to edges to make him more fuzzy.
I’m having so much fun with this block. Just can’t wait for the next one!
Thanks so much for stopping by,
