    Bumblebee Quilt to be raffled

    This is a machine embroidered Bumblebee quilt that is going to be donated to the local Primary School for them to raffle.

    I was given 2 FQ's of the pale blue fabric and told "see what you can do with this", it was left over from a challenge my club members participated in.
    I stitched out the embroideries and then let it sit for a while as I didn't want to set it in rows. Searching through my designs I found the embroidery for the centre block so I stitched that out. Then I spent a few weeks with pen and paper working out what would look good.
    I am really pleased with the final result, it ended up 60 inches square and took me 4 days to quilt it and I used 14 bobbins.

    "Piecin' a quilt's like livin' a life...The Lord sends us the pieces, but we can cut 'em out and put 'em together pretty much to suit ourselves, and there's a heap more in the cuttin' and the sewin' than there is in the caliker...I've had a heap of comfort all my life making quilts, and now in my old age I wouldn't take a fortune for them." (Eliza Calvert Hall, Aunt Jane of Kentucky)
