Bee In My Bonnet Row Along Quilt Finish


I finished my scrappy Bee In My Bonnet Row Along quilt. Just out of the washer and dryer, it finished at 68"x 85", twin size range. It's cute.


The backing is light blue polka dots on white. The binding is scrappy, too. I cut 10" strips from scraps and sewed them end to end.


It's quilted with  horizontal wavy quilting lines. I used my domestic sewing machine, a walking foot and the stitch length set at 3.2. Feels good to have this UFO finished.
Thank you Lori Holt for creating the pattern for this quilt and hosting a row along.

Sheila, this is definitely CUTE as a button! Love those wavey quilting lines--I am new to machine quilting and will give those a try on my next piece. Do you quilt all the way to the edges? I spent the afternoon pulling threads to the back and tying them off--seems there must be a better way! Have a fun weekend. Congrats on a lovely finish!! Julierose

I love yours!! I reallly love it. I'm going to take mine off the wall and put up another quilt. Mine seems too bright for my sewing room. I think mine is better off on a bed. They were so fun to make.
