Have you ever participated in a Quilt a Long? I’m so excited to be participating in a couple this year and today I get to share with you this fun Quilt A Long hosted by the super talented Jacquelynne Steves for this Save the Bees Quilt!
Isn’t it darling? I’ve been doing some research about starting to raise my own bees so when Jacquelynne contact me about the Quilt Along I was so excited! The Quilt pattern is free at Jacquelynne’s blog – you can click here to get all the info.

Every month there are several bloggers who will be sharing their own versions of the quilt blocks – here is mine!
I created my version of the block with Vintage Adventure fabrics. If you’re visiting for the first time, Vintage Adventure is my first fabric line with Riley Blake Designs. I love how it worked with this fun flower and bee block!
For my block, I did a combination of hand and machine embroidery. The hand embroidery is a simple running stitch done with three strands of gray floss for the path of the bee. I outlined the flower and other details with a free motion foot on my machine and Aurifil 50wt Black thread.
Since I don’t have any yellow in my fabric line, I used a little piece from Bunnies and Blossoms by Lauren Nash for Riley Blake Designs. It blends great with Vintage Adventure!

I have tried before with the best of intentions. This will be my first. Life just kept getting in the way. This is to sweet, so I must get it done.

Deb Quartz says
I have done one other quilt along and I am looking forward to this one.
En Provence, a mystery by Bonnie Hunter.
I have done several quilt along’s. I like them because it’s inspiring to see how other quilters fabrics display a totally different look to the given quilt pattern. Makes me less afraid to think out of the box for fabric choices. In several FB groups now working on a couple of primitive quilt along’s.
Pat Whiteley says
I’ve never finished one unfortunately. Gotten 3-5 blocks in and that’s where I stop. Don’t know why, it just happens. This one looks very quick and easy, I think I should be fine. One can only hope!
Marilyn Yager says
I did a quilt along at the local sewing store a few years ago. It was afghan size and each block had a flower using different techniques. It was a real learning experience. It was a lot of fun to work on and to see what the others in the class did with theirs.

I saw a picture of the granddaughter with her 3 quilts and can’t pick which one is her favorite. Her grandmother hopes to win this 4 quilt–save the bees!

I was in a quilt along 20 years ago we all did everything by hand. Made our templates from cardboard or plastic & drew the pieces on the fabric. We didn’t use rotary blades either! I’ve been looking forward to Save The Bees to do it on my machine! I’ve bought your vintage adventure fabric from the Fat Quarter Shop & I’m using the Dresden plate pattern. I love the look & feel of your fabric ❤
Susan Kluger says
I am getting ready to do a quilt along for The Farmers Wife, 1920 Quilt Sampler. I was working on some of the blocks through a class at my quilt store which had ended when I found a quilt along online. Although most will be doing EPP, I will use my sewing machine for piecing. It’s going to be interesting doing both of these, but this one is much shorter than The Farmer’s Wife.
Sue D says
So cute–love your choice of fabrics. I have never done a quilt along before but would like to in the future.

Yes, I’ve participated in several quilt-alongs, beginning with a block of the month 15 years ago from a far-flung quilt shop, moving on to Tula Pink’s 100 blocks, and then on to several ongoing quilt-alongs this year. It seems I usually start strong, then fall behind, but always finish and am glad I did. With this quilt along, given how small it is–how few blocks there are, I”m hopeful I can keep up. :)
I have done many QAL. I have made wall hangings, table toppers, and quilts.

I have got a quilt a long at the moment but I do it sporadically as it is EPP and while relaxing it doesn’t grow very fast!

I’m already involved with a mystery QAL this year and it has been great fun. I prefer to select all my fabrics and colours first, so it’s also been quite a challenge. I’ve selected my fabrics for Save the Bees, so I’m raring to go. Your colours are cute and I love the free motion raw edge appliqué.
Peg Cox says
I’ve done BOM and the like. Have a box of quilt blocks to make a quilt from same. Never really did a Sew-A-Long to put them together. I’ve made other quilts that weren’t sew-a-longs nor BOMs.

I have entered a few quilt alongs and some mystery quilt alongs. I seem to fall behind because I try to do too much at one time.

This Bee pattern was much too cute to not participate. Thank you!

Lisa Byrd says
I have never participated in a quilt along before. I’m excited to participate.
Your block is pretty! I have done a couple of quilt alongs. One was for a garden & sewing theme blocks. I never made the quilt, but used some blocks to make sewing machine covers. I also did a Tea themed sew along with Jacquelynne Steves and her house one too, but never finished those either. I guess I just liked making the blocks. I should get those finished!
Kaye Walker says
I have several quilt-alongs going at the same time. The last quilt in a quilt-along I finished was called “I Love Home”.

I have not done a quilt a long.

I had never done one until this year. I started two in January and now two this month. There is a snowman quilt, a Murder mystery quilt, fun on the farm and now Save the Bees.

What a nice finish the vintage fabrics made for this project! Great use for them! I have never done a quilt-along online.

Sharon Aurora says
Yes, I am participating in a few right now, but since this is my first year doing this, I’ve not completely finished any of my quilts yet. I have finished all the blocks for 2 of them, but I still have to put the blocks together and quilt them. They are so much fun.

Love your fabric—wonderful!

Well, kind of…. I started the original splendid sampler, made about 30 blocks and got inundated by life. Plus I’m easily distracted with new projects… . i think this Sampler will be small enough for me to finish!!!!

Yes I have….just finished the Sewing a Village quilt along with houses that people all across the country participated in. I loved it!
I have participated in a few quilt alongs. I am always amazed at how different the quilts can look using the very same pattern. For that reason I always say that quilts are magic, or “same only different”. :)
Nancy G says
I am doing a see along now, the Kingfisher quilt sew along is ongoing and I’m loving the process. This will be my second sew along.

Denise :) says
Your block is simply darling . . . very prettily executed! I’ve done BOMs and I’ve *saved* blocks from quilt alongs, but I’ve never actually stitched them up as they were introduced. LOL! I’ll get there someday! :)
I have done two in the past. A girlfriend and I would drive 1 hr to Palm Springs each month. I am not sure if I had more fun with the quilting or the visits there and back. Either way, one grand baby uses the 30’s print quilt I made and my parents have the other quilt I made through these classes. Super fun!
Laura Sloan says
I’ve never done a quilt along. This BOM is so CUTE! I think it would be wonderful in a baby’s room
I have participated in several quilt alongside and find them to be very fun. Your block turned out beautiful.
I mean quilt alongs I am writing this on my phone and auto correct changed it.
My first QAL in 2012 was for beginners and each block taught a new piecing skill. It was a great introduction to quilting.
