In Progress – Bee Happy Quilt

I’ve been busy as a bee on this quilt! It’s the Bee Happy Quilt by Lori Holt using her newest Bee Basics & Bee Backgrounds lines. The pattern is a free download from Riley Blake Designs’ website. Each week, Lori posts great photos of her block construction and tips for making yours as cute as hers. I wasn’t so sure about doing the embroidery on this one, but I’m glad I went ahead and tried it. It doesn’t take very long to do and it really is a great detail on these blocks.

Brace yourself! Many, many pictures ahead! 🙂

Finished cutting the interfacing for the appliqué:

One of many days of cutting. There was a TON of cutting to do for this quilt. I’m glad I did it all beforehand, so I could just pick the bag of pieces I needed and sew:
