Great for Using Up Some of Those Scraps!
The “bees” in this charming quilt look a bit like flowers to us, but even so the “Honey Bee” quilt is gorgeous. The bright colors and scrappy look make it fun and interesting.
The quilt is easy to stitch together. Nine patch blocks form the center of each block and the pieced border. Fusible applique bees are stitched in place with a blanket stitch, although you can use whatever stitch you prefer.
The designer, Erin of Why Not Sew, does not specify the finished size of the quilt other than to say it’s lap sized. You can easily adjust the size based on the number of bee blocks you make.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
