I really loved the folk art style bird appliqué centre, and unlike the other quilts I knew exactly which fabrics I wanted to use. I belong to the Queen Bee Quilters, so I had to use this fabulous bee background :)
I plan to hand quilt it with aurifil 12wt thread, I have a nice selection of colours leftover from Happy Days and I bought this variegated beige/taupe for the background.
I have made a rough plan, the background (on the bee fabrics) will be a hexagon grid and I will probably use this stencil to make a feature of the outer plain border. I have a striped fabric for the binding which should work well to tie it all in.
I embroidered this bag a couple of years ago from a kit and have never used it, it's just the right size to carry all my hand quilting supplies.
I just need to sort out my backing and batting and get it basted!
