I had planned this quilt for a double bed, but in the intervening year, we had bought a full king size bed, so the quilt was now too small, and I had to add a border. I was worried it was all going to look a bit silly, but in the end I think the border complemented the pinwheels.
And a special quilt needed a special photo shoot. We took off to the chateau in town one late evening in summer
As I said, this was my very first bee, and so will always be special.
Pattern; From the Stitch Tease ladies (in no particular order)
Fabrics: We each chose a fabric - mine was Sea Scallop, by Michael Miller, which I used in every bee block. The rest was scraps from our stashes
Backing: Ikea (not sure of it's name)
Binding: Deco Flowers stripe from Makower
Quilted: FMQ'd by myself in an overall meander using Aurifil 50 weight thread in white.
Category: Bee block
