In Progress: Quilt Tops

>> Tuesday, November 16, 2010

Don't you love to see the progress of a quilting bee quilt? From the initial fabric that's picked out to be mailed across the world, to the pictures of the blocks that start trickling in, to the quilt top that's carefully pieced together, to finally a gorgeous, brand-spankin-new quilt all quilted and bound?

Here's a few pictures of some bee quilts that are on that journey ... some quilt tops to give you inspiration:

ChaletGirl13's pretty green and grey quilt with blocks made for her by the Around the Block Quilting Bee.

Jamie is seeing what her rainbow strips will look like on charcoal sashing - strips made by the New Kid on the Block Quilting Bee.

TraceyJay got her Christmas quilt top put together with the help of the Putting the Bee in Christmas group, and is trying to decide if it needs a scrappy border.

AllieKatmom sent out black and grey fabrics to her bee members in the Sew 2 Speak Bee, and asked them to add one color. She's trying to decide if she should add sashing or a border.

What do you think?

Do you have a Virtual Quilting Bee quilt top put together that you want featured on Quilting Bee Blocks?  Do you want the readers of our blog to weigh in with their opinions on what color sashing you should use, what size of border, what backing or binding fabric would best suit your quilt?  Email me so I can write about you and your quilt!
