This is Lifetime Quilt #41, Thelma's Flower Garden. I got it back from my quilter months ago, put it in the closet, and forgot all about it.
Today I was getting out some of my spring decorations and I remembered this quilt, it sure says spring to me.
This is the pattern I used, Hip to Bee Square, by Humble Bee Quilt Works. If you've been looking for a great pattern to showcase a large print fabric, this pattern is for you.
For the quilting, I just went with an overall swirly pattern. I wanted it to feel like a bee was buzzing around the quilt top, going from flower to flower.
My red couch usually plays nicely with any quilt I display on it.
That's a lot of color on that sofa. Maybe a little too loud for me, but I'm keeping the quilt there through the weekend. It's the only thing blooming around my house!
I hope you have a marvelous weekend,
from beginning . . .
