Bee Positive 2 Quilt

I have finished up the Bee Positive 2 quilt for Father Cooper!  The binding was the last thing.  
I had much help with applying this!

 Her eyes matched the quilt!


This, though, was truly obnoxious!  I had to move her with the quilt!


Here it is in all it's glory!
I am completely smitten with this.


I can't wait to do a quilt along with this block!
Don't forget to stop back in January for a Bee Positive Quilt Along.
I hope you all are as excited as I am for this!!!


I know you may not think you can do it but trust me you totally can!
They are very addicting to make though so watch out.
You will begin and then get lost in the process.
I found it difficult to stop once I began.


I made a few improv pieced crosses for the back and I love how they came out too.
They were pretty time consuming to make but I love the finished look.


I put them next to the blocks that were signed by everyone in the parish.
Yes, it is a pretty small church.


You can see the lay out of the entire back in this photo.


I did embroider a label that I sewed into the back.
As I may have already stated, I really don't like making labels so this is my new way.
Embroider the label and put it into the back.
No label to sew on when the quilt is finished!


Just in case you have not noticed the spectacular quilting(done by my friend Liz) here is a close up.


My plan is to give this to Father Cooper's mom on Sunday so he will have it soon.

I am going to link up to Finish It Up Friday over at Crazy Mom Quilts.

Have a wonderful weekend and

GO STATE!!

Beautiful quilting with different motifs - swirls, circles, 3 petals, etc. Keeps the eye moving and looking for new things. Love it. And yes, those blocks are additive - once you trim one block you see that you can use the scraps to make another block which leads to a 3rd block, etc. Fun and fast!!

I love your quotes on your quilt. They will strengthen others forever.

The finished quilt is wonderful! After studying it, I have found several of the blocks that I sent. Proud to be a part of this project. Best wishes to Father Cooper.

Hey Joyce, You are a no reply so I will reply here. Thank you for sending blocks! I used every block that was sent to me except for 2 from my friend Dot as her arrived when I was finished. I kept mine out so I could make sure to have everyone else's in!! So thrilled you were able to spot yours. Eagle eyes for sure!!
