Honeybee Quilt // Vintage Quilt Sunday

Honeybee Quilt from Linda Fasules2

I was so happy when my friend Linda Fasules from I Finally Have Time sent me pictures of this quilt.  Her mother-in-law purchased this Honeybee Quilt years ago; she has more pictures and some history behind the quilt block on her blog. She also has a post about using a product called Retro Clean to clean this quilt. Check it out!

Thanks, Linda, for sharing.

Happy Sunday, everyone.

I am looking for quilts that are beautiful, quilts that have great stories, quilts that are funky or fun, quilts that are unique, quilts that were made by your great great grandmother–basically, great vintage quilts. I will be posting on Sundays, and once a month I plan to post a block tutorial based on one of the vintage quilts featured here.

    Oh, I love this. I find myself drawn more and more to quilts that include hand appliqué…the orange peel quilts, the dresden plates, the honey bee. :)

      I am definitely drawn to hand applique quilts, too. I’m just not sure if I’m up for the challenge! happy sewing.

      p.s. your dresden quilt is so beautiful! Can I share a photo of it on my blog as part of Vintage Quilt Sunday? Maybe March 22? Then I can just point people towards your blog post? For some reason, I can’t remember my wordpress password, so wasn’t able to leave a comment on your blog. Thanks!
