My project this month was to complete my Save The Bees quilt from last year’s block of the month with Jacquelynne Steves. I finished the quilt top, had it quilted by my sister-in-law, Audrey, and then added the binding, hanging sleeve and label!

I found the perfect fabric last year to use for the border and the backing. It’s called Bee My Sunshine by Katie Pertiet for Windham Fabrics which released in September of 2017. I bought it in two color ways since I wasn’t sure where it was going to end up in my quilt. I used the cream background in the border and both of them for the backing. The quilting has the cutest bees buzzing all over!

I love having labels ready to go. I ordered mine at Dutch Label Shop; I added the year of completion using a Pentel Gel Fabric marking pen.

  1. Love the way you finished and framed the quilt with the border and the quilting is great too! I am almost finished with the binding for my UFO for my Merry and Bright I did with Pat Sloan. It was put on the side as I am working on my 9 patch which I love! Another beautiful quilt Julie. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Wah!! I didn’t get my planned project done because I got caught up in the Disappearing 9 Patch. LOL! But at least my D9P top is almost done, just need to find a border print!!! So excited. I think it will become my picnic quilt.

  3. Julie, Save the Bees looks wonderful, love, love the quilting pattern. Mine is still somewhere on the WIP pile, thanks to U now I have some inspiration. ( One day will be finished )

  4. These blocks broke the cute scale when you starting making them. I have been waiting for you to finish every since you started this project. I was so happy when I saw it on your UFO list. :-)) Way, way………..WAY TOO CUTE. I love it!!!

I love hearing from you! Thanks for leaving a comment.
