Bee Happy Sew Along

Call me insane…but I am doing the Lori Holt, “Bee Happy Sew Along”!Bee Happy Sew AlongThis is Lori Holt’s newest sew along.

All of these blocks are part of a “Jump Start”!  

The sew along does not even start until next week!  

My oh My!  What have I gotten myself into this time!!

I have discovered in this “jump start” that this quilt is very labor intensive!  It is going to require a lot of time and I sure hope that I will be able to see it through to the end!

This is what the finished quilt should look like.  She got me with the vintage glamper and the pickup truck with the puppy in the back!

Had a hard time finding any quilt shops that would cut a kit, because there are so many different fabrics and it was very labor intensive to cut.  

So, I just bought some fat quarters and background fabrics and I am kind of doing my own colors.  But that will be the fun in it!Bee Happy Sew AlongHere is a close-up of some of the blocks.  The flag one is one of my favorites.  

Churn and dash quilt blocks along with pinwheel blocks.  And of course there are lots of appliqued blocks!!

Should have done a different thread color, rather than match the fabric.  

Oh well, live and learn.bee happy sew alongThere are several of these mini blocks that are spread throughout the quilt.

A lot of details in a small square!

It is a darling quilt.  

Will just have to take it one block at a time and remember that it is not a race!!!

It is more of a summer quilt, so I have until next summer to work on it…right?

Have any of you started a big project now that summer is over?  It seems like the perfect time to have a fun project to work on over the cold winter months!

Thanks for Visiting…Have a “Bee Happy” Weekend!

    1. Dot, Thank you so much for taking the time to write your kind comment. I hope to be able to finish this quilt some day!! :) But thanks for the luck!

  1. I wanted to tell you about my Aunt Betsy who sewed old ties together in quilting. She did Brazilian embroidery flowers like roses on the ties first and then added them to quilting. They were beautiful!.

    P.S. LOVE YOUR BEE QUILTING display. You are very talented.

    1. Mary, WOW, what a work of art your Aunt Betsy did! That is amazing. So, I guess I am not the only crazy one out there. :) Thank for taking the time to write your kind comment, I love hearing from you.
