One of my favorite things to do is search out finished bee quilts in our Flickr group and in many of the other bee groups we have listed on the Master List of Virtual Quilting Bees. Recently I hit the jackpot when I was reading through blogs and saw a bee quilt that had just been finished. In fact, my friend Jenny (mommymae) might hold the award for most completed bee quilts at FOUR! Isn't that amazing? She's made each of her four kids a quilt using blocks she's received in different bees.
What's more is that she included patchwork pieces of 2" squares that she inherited from her grandmother on the backs of each quilt - isn't that the sweetest extra detail? All four of the quilts are just gorgeous and so different from each other - take a look for yourself:
The bee members of Busy Little Quilting Bee helped her make these red and pink beauties for her twin daughters:
She made this darling quilt for her son with the help of the bee members of A Notion or Two:
My favorite block:
Some of Grandma's squares:
And finally her most recent finish, this lovely quilt for her other daughter, from the members of Tethered Threads:
The patchwork from the back:
She has an amazing full Flickr set with more pictures of this quilt if you'd like to see more.
I just know Jenny's kids are going to cherish for many years having such special quilts made by their mom!
