There's a quilting book I have which I just love, it's called "Modern Bee, 13 quilts to make with friends, by Lindsey Conner.
This block is called "Come Together", and I chose it for my Bees Knees, a quilting bee.
I was making the quilt for my son in law, and needed something on the masculine side :)
I bought some beautiful Kona teal, Kona Snow White, and used some Denyse Schmidt fat quarters that I had in my stash.
The black print corners are Cotton and Steel.
I cut the fabric and made kits for each of my bee friends.
The blocks matched up perfectly, and I began machine quilting!
I quilted crosshatch squares, about an inch and a half apart.
I took a class on Craftsy, by Jacquie Gehring.
She told us to put painter's tape on the sandwiched quilt, to guide our first machine quilting line, from corner to corner.
After that, I used the guide on my walking foot to follow.
Yay, I successfully quilted the whole thing!
It was a windy day when I photographed my quilt.
I backed the quilt with orange, it's my son in law's favorite color.
I really wanted to keep the quilt for myself, lol!
There are little paw prints in the shape of circles on the orange fabric.
My son in law has 5 dogs, so I thought it was perfect!
Thanks for following my blog :)
