Bee quilt

There may be a blizzard outside, but we're cozy inside under our bee quilt.

As you may recall, I finished quilting this two snowstorms ago (three storms in less than three months = wild!). It was a beast to quilt, and that was just doing horizontal lines. I'm not sure I could have handled any other type of quilting. I love the horizontal lines though. I really do.

Let's talk a little about this blue. I originally wanted to use something a bit brighter (ala Amy Butler lotus blue) for the back, but my local fabric store is sadly lacking in solid colors these days. So I "settled" for this pale blue. After living with it for a little while though, I now think it's perfect blue for this quilt. A brighter blue would have been too much.


Thanks to all the participants of the Pieced Together Quilting Bee for helping me create this beauty!
