At the end of September my sisters and nieces came to my house for our little yearly quilt retreat. Several of them finished their 2012 project, which were from my Freda's Beehive quilt pattern. The tutorial for the blocks is here. It is really wonderful to see my family making quilts together. It gives me so much satisfaction to see the finished products. I know Freda would approve.
This large version is my sister Michelle's quilt. It is queen sized and I think she's going to put it on her bed up at the ranch in Wyoming. It really turned out so beautifully.
Eagle Mountain Quilting did the edge-to-edge machine quilting. I really love how it goes with the beehive theme of the quilt.
You can see the pattern better on the back of the quilt - the hives, bees and honey pot pattern stitched all over the quilt. Super cute.
This is my sister Polly's table topper. I think she did a great job.
This one is my niece Tricia's table topper. She may end up hanging it on the wall. I stitched the binding on all 3 quilts so now they just have to hand stitch the binding to the backs of each quilt. That makes for good hand work on a cool evening. I hope they like how their quilts turned out. I'm really proud of them.
