Bee Hive Lap Quilt | Finished or Not Friday Linky Party | GIVEAWAY!

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!

Welcome to Finished or Not Friday where you can share your finished {or not} projects!

Today I have two finishes to share with you!  The first is a Bee Hive lap quilt, made from the May 2018 Sew Sampler Box.

The Sew Sampler Box came with a jolly bar of Pepper and Flax fabric.  I made more blocks than the pattern called for and added background fabric and a border to bring the quilt to a really nice lap size.

I found a Riley Blake print in my stash that coordinates perfectly with Pepper and Flax.  Unfortunately, I forgot to write down the name of the fabric collection.

Quilt Stats:
Pattern:  Bee Hive Quilt, pattern exclusive to the Sew Sampler Box.
Size:  55" x 62"
Fabric:  Pepper and Flax by Corey Yoder for Moda Fabrics
Backing:  A Riley Blake print
Batting:  Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 cotton/poly
Quilting:  Canna on Gratitude in white thread.

This quilt is for sale in my quilt shop!

Your quilts are both gorgeous. Thank you for the giveaway opportunities...tough decisions on both accounts. Thank you for the link up party. It's great to see everyone's progress, especially when I feel mine sometimes lag behind.
