I am trying to make everyone in my family quilts for/by Christmas. My sister is in love with bees, and so for her quilt I picked white/black/grey/yellow prints. She came to visit me this past week/weekend, and so I gave her the quilt early. She loved it. <3

|Happy as a clam, eh?|
|Here is the back. I pieced the middle just to break up the grey speckled fabric.|

I love this quilt. I think part of the reason it is one of my favorite so far is because of the reaction. I gave it to them in person, and saw them use it and love it. And since then, I have received pictures of them using it at home also. <3 It makes me happy to know that the quilt I took time creating is well loved.
I used a pattern from a magazine, and just changed it to suit my color choices. For quilting the top, I used an all over free motion meander. I used grey thread, because I didn't want it to be shocking on the back of the quilt. The binding is machine sewed to the front, and hand stitched to the back. I was actually working on this quilt while they were here - finishing up the hand stitching!! :D
