After putting the top together I decided to start out with just some stitch in the ditch quilting around the blocks to see how much more quilting I needed to do. I really liked the soft feel of the quilt at that point, so finished it off by quilting the teardrops down (they are raw edge, so will fray a tiny bit after a few washes, but will stay put because of the quilting). I love the white and yellow dot I found for the back - it looks a bit like a honeycomb!
I intended to add just loop the loops around the edges, but found this awesome tutorial to quilt a Honeybee on The Inbox Jaunt - if you like free motion quilting, you have to check this blog! Seriously, fun and easy to do because she shows the step by step process. She also has a great set of doodle tutorials that I fully intend to work through someday. So I ended up with bees and loops and added her name as well.
Now it's time to pack these beauties up and send them to their home.
I've got more projects ready to be started! It's just as much fun to start a new project as it is to finish one, I think!
