I'll BEE Quilting

 The above photo belongs to Carrie from A Passion for Applique blog.  Carrie participated in the free Row along designed by Lori Holt of Bee in My Bonnet blog.  You can read more about it at Carrie's blog.
 Carrie wanted the quilting to be open with good size bees all over her top.  Check out the label!  It's also a good size label and what I thought was a really cool idea is that Carrie appliqued this onto her backing before I quilted the top.
  I'm showing the back here so you can see bee quilting better.
 I loved the background print with the bees in it!!  How sweet is that?!
Here's a little peek of Lesley's Schnibble "Gentle Art" that she had me quilt with thread spools and needles.  I have a special offer going until the end of June to quilt your Schnibbles Gentle Art quilt with the same quilting motif.  You can read about it here at this blog post.

Now that is my favorite of the Row-Along quilts I have seen. And the quilting is a great enhancement. Isn't the label Lori designed so cute?

Beautiful 'frosting' as usual! Love the bees and I'll let Carrie know that she went over the top with label. Great idea to place it on BEFORE the quilting.

That is the perfect quilting motif for the quilt! Good Job!
XOXO,

Your quilting is so stunning! Love those bees, but especially love those "spools" and can't wait to see them in real life! Thank you!

Love the big bees on this quilt. Beautiful job for a lovely quilt.

Carrie's color range is appealing to me. I like the reds that Lori Holt used too. She certainly has her own style and red has to be her favorite color.

What a lovely quilt...... I wish I knew about that row - along! I would have loved to join.
Great quilting!

Kaaren said...

This is the first of Lori's row along that I've seen quilted. Love the bee design! Great choice, Mary!

Lesley is going to be so pleased with her Gentle Art Schnibble. I'm hoping to have mine finished this weekend...gonna cut it out today. "Hoping" is the key word here but I will have it finished before the end off the month to take advantage of your special price and even special-er quilting!

Carrie did an awesome job as usual but so did you. I always admire your quilting Mary.

Karen said...

Beautiful job on the quilting and that big label is a great touch - need to remember that.

Love Carrie's quilt and your quilting really sets it off nicely! Cute bees! I read somewhere a long while back about adding the label before quilting. Makes it very hard for some one to remove the label if it is 'misplaced'.
