Fun in Garden Handmade Quilt Wall Hanging
Don’t talk to a Midwest beekeeper in January, all you are bound to hear is how they are missing their bees. That’s right, some of us get quite attached to those little flying bugs and when we don’t get to regularly see them….well, let’s just say I’m in snow and ice-covered mid-Missouri and I’m missing my tiny girls.
When bee-deprived keepers then see a bee, any bee, it’s pure joy and this handmade quilt and wall hanging photo brought a big smile to my face. Can you see why?
Those are bee buttons sewn on the quilted design of lollipop flowers. Honest, I peeked. The yellow looks wonderful against the black and white fabric background. The flowers themselves are quite eye-catching in their bright fabrics and mesmerizing centers.
The flower petals are also interesting, they have strips of patterned fabrics against solid fabrics that add dimension.
I was looking closely at one of the quilted flowers when I was startled by another discovery. See the little green frog in the top left corner?
This is a handmade quilt made into a wall hanging and it proves that small can still be mighty.
Handmade quilts each have their own story and this one is quite simple, it was all about the fabrics.
Quilters know bad fabric choice can destroy a quilt design and this work of art shows what good fabric choices can do. And bees, don’t forget the bees!
