Bee a Star

I love the pattern by Andy Knowlton of A Bright Corner that was featured in the August 2017 American Patchwork & Quilting magazine (page 40).  I had the bright fabrics & had bought the white fabric a couple of months ago.  The fabric is much brighter in real life.  Finished the quilt this evening and the sun was setting so lots of shadows in the yard.

The bright blue fabric in the blocks & outer border has bees with a dotted flight pattern.  I echoed that flight pattern in the machine quilting.  Simple and effective, or at least I think so.

The name of the quilt also came from the star blocks & the bee fabric.  I beelieve we are all stars!!  ((Spelling error on purpose))

Beelieve in yourself.  Bee kind to yourself & others. No one left beehind.

OK.  Enough of that.  I hope you find this quilt as darling as I do.  I beelieve (sorry) that I will put this one in my "for sale" pile.

Simple but darling pattern.

Colors are much brighter in real life.  Note the bee flight machine quilting.

Bee a Star.  Says it all.

Used the printed fabric for backing.  Really does not show how bright the fabrics are.

Oh yes, I forgot to mention the matching pillowcase.

Early Birthday Adventures

I have taken a couple of days off from my job.  Yesterday we took a quick trip to Provo to pick up some things.  We had lunch at Culver's in Spanish Fork.  Hubby's favorite when we are up north (or even down south).

Today it was a trip to Fillmore to have lunch at Cluff's.  Hubby has talked this place up for several years but the one time we went there together they were closed for the season.  He has visited the place with his motorcycle riding buddies.  After the great meal today I have instructed hubby that he can no longer go there without me (LOL).


Beautiful flower landscaping at Cluff's

Hubby ordered the fish 'n chips

The BEST onion rings ever!

I had the Santa Fe burger.  It was fantastic!

Came home to find these awesome gifts on my front porch.  I don't know who they are from but I absolutely love them.  Thank you Thank you Thank you

The flowers are made from aluminum cans.

Tomorrow is my birthday and I am so blessed.  I appreciate all of the cards and special touches.  I am one lucky woman.
