I missed the last link-up for the Triangle Quilt Along over at the Sassy Quilter. It was a very busy week and I didn’t get my top done until Saturday. But, I now have the top done and the backing finished and I am incredibly pleased with both. Here’s how it all started:
I started piecing the rows together in sections. Quadrants work better for me than rows when piecing large sections. I tend to be a bit more precise that way.
So, I pieced the left rows together 4 at a time then the right side ones. I joined the left to the right. This was done in 3 sections. My points are not perfect but some of them came out pretty good.
It was a gorgeous day out so I took this top outside for some glamour shots.
It turned out great. I’ve been trying to think of a name for this quilt and as I was sewing this backing together it just hit me. The Birds and the Bees. The sweetest bees on the front and those birds on the back Perfect!
Now, I need to do the basting. Which is the part I continuously put off and the reason I have more quilt tops than finished quilts. This time I have a great excuse. How in the world could I have disturbed this?
