Sew Fresh Quilt Bee – March Link Up
I so happy to finally be sharing a finished BEE block quilt with you!
As I’ve said before, this type of piecing is not normal for me. I don’t usually don’t do improv. But I enjoyed making the wonky slab blocks and using up some familiar scraps.
Tackling this smaller 12 block quilt was just what the doctor ordered. It’s a nice manageable size. And I quilted my favourite organic wavy lines with my walking foot using plain white Guetterman thread on top and in the bobbin.
The backing and binding are Doe Eyed from the Moon Shine collection by Tula Pink for Free Spirit. I bought about 4 yards of this when it went on sale at Mad About Patchwork quite a while ago. I am trying hard to work from stash this year. And it feels good to find a project that this fabric suits. Bees on the backing and binding for a BEE block quilt!
I still have enough blocks remaining to make a larger quilt for next month’s link up. And then these quilts are on their way to London to be delivered to the Ronald McDonald House Children’s Hospitals. It is my hope that all of the blocks and quilts we are making will bring a little joy and comfort to children in need.
I’m happy to have you join the hive! To read all about the Sew Fresh Quilt Bee click here.

I love the look of your improv blocks, it looks great! The wavy lines quilting is perfect for it, adding just a touch of texture but letting the blocks shine. Where did you get those custom quilt labels / ribbons printed? I'd love to do something like that, as putting on a label the traditional way is just way too much work.
Love your quilt! You did a beautiful job of each block!
The blue really brings the improv of these blocks all together , and as it's my favourite tones of blue I am slightly biased
I love your version of this quilt Lorna. You were quite brave and inventive in putting your slabs together.
