BEE happy!

Minnie, from Texas, recently sent me this absolutely adorable quilt to quilt.
It was a block-of-the-week sampler. 
(I can't even seem to get a block of the MONTH completed at my house)
She has entered it in a "30's fabric" local quilt show within her community.
She used Lori Holt's book, "Quilty Fun" which you can find here in Lori's Etsy shop.
Minnie did a phenomenal job on this little quilt!
I could hardly wait to get my hands & machine on it!
Minnie said, "Do your magic".
So I quilted every block section different - I love doing that!
Here we go - lots and lots of photos!
This cute red border needed some straight line echoing:
bumble bee...
I could have an entire quilt out of the "X's" and 1/4 squares...
mugs & leaves...
courthouse step blocks...
apples & apple core...
Every sampler needs a home...or two!
Look at those little spools below the houses...
baskets and stars...
Minnie chose a solid red for the binding - perfect!
I think this sweet little quilt is definitely a winner!
Thank you, Minnie, for letting me play on your "Bee Happy" quilt.


  1. Wow, Scottie Jean! Amazing work.....again!

  2. I have been dying to do one of Lori's quilts since I came across her blog a couple years ago. I have the quilty fun book...now if I can just get brave enough to try it! This quilt is so adorable, just like ALL her designs, and your quilting is perfection, bringing out each detail so beautifully. Love it!

    1. Thank you, my friend. I loved quilting this one and was a wee bit sad when it was finished and I had to send it back!

  3. Very nice quilt and outstanding stitching!!

  4. I followed along as Lori Holt did this on her blog and instagram , really cute did a nice job.

  5. I got Lori Holt's book for Christmas from my lovely daughter. I need to get sewing! Just beautiful quilting, Kathy!
