Bea’s Blooms Quilt

This is my Bea’s Blooms quilt, just finished for my daughter Beatrix. I kinda love it! I was asked to be a part of Shari Butler’s Blog Tour for her new collection “In The Meadow” for Sweet Bee Designs. I received the fabrics and really fell in love!

I loved the happy colors and especially appreciated how many different really fun white background prints there were. I decided I wanted to make a quilt that really featured the backgrounds. Bea’s Blooms is made completely with Half Hexie’s , using the layout to create simple flowers. I made this quilt pretty small in size, because in my experience those are the quilts that will become “woobies” for little ones, as they can easily carry them around themselves.

See, she loves it already!

Sewing these Half Hexie’s is really simple and quick, the only thing you need to pay attention to is the layout in order to create the flowers with fabric placement.

P.S.

I even used some of my In The Meadow Fabrics for my Row #7 in my Row Along Quilt. It’s the row on the bottom, doesn’t it look great!?

Daisy Baby


If I have a little girl someday, I will give her this quilt. I love the simplicity of the design and the soft colors. I made this quilt using the Daisy Cottage collection of fabrics, but it could be made with anything that you love. These fabrics are very girly, but you can change the fabrics to work wonderfully for a boy. This is a great go- to baby quilt for all of those baby showers you will be attending this spring. We are giving you the pattern, it is easy and fast and very beginner friendly. Just follow the link below for the instructions. This quilt is designed to work with 2 sets of 5″ charm squares plus a complimentary fabric.
