Hello and Good Morning
I am a new member to this group so here is a little about me and my project. Formerly I only ventured into cross stitch and tapestry but I decided to have a go at patchwork and quilting. I started off with machine stitched squares and what has become my Bee Quilt
which as you can see also incorporates a cross stitch of a bee on lavender (not my design) which is actually removable if the quilt needs to be washed.
Next I thought I would try hand stitching some hexagons and I was hooked – it is so absorbing and satisfying. So here is my project that I am working on at the moment – I called it My Seasonal Quilt.
This is not all sewn together, just laid out for photo shoot.
So this was my initial layout of the borders to the central piece, but I kept feeling that there was too much white. So whilst browsing the internet I came across the following and immediately decided that I would include it in the border design.
It will be following the original border layout, so eight dotted along the top and bottom and eight sewn in a strip alongside the blue and yellow strips separated by a white strip
Hopefully that is the final amendment.
Well that is all for this post, please pop along to the other members to see how they are faring with their individual projects. If you would like to join this HQAL group please contact Kathy for details. (1st name in list below)

Beautiful stitching and quilts. So happy to have you with the group!
Thank you and I am getting around to view everyone’s projects
Love the bee cross-stitch – whose design is it? Your seasonal quilt is going to be gorgeous too, I haven’t got the patience for all those little hexagons, so I’m always very impressed with those of you who do 🙂
Hi and thank you, I don’t have the details to hand at the moment but on an earlier post when showing this centre piece I acknowledged the designer.
A border with more color on your flower quilt will be a nice add on. The bee stitchery is Wonderful,the quilt shows it off nicely.
Fabulous quilting work so far. And that embroidery is precious. I am the opposite of you. I started with quilting and nowadays I’m venturing in cross stitch and embroidery. 🙂
