I am in the Canadian Modern Quilt Bee on Instagram this year (#canadianmodernquiltbee) and for my bee block in January I chose the log cabin heart block by Just Jude. You can read more in her blog post. She has a free tutorial/pattern with a YouTube video.
Originally I wanted my blocks to have a Kona snow background and I was going to make a large rainbow quilt. Some of my bee mates didn’t have Kona snow though so half my blocks came with a white background and I decided to make two quilts.
One quilt is for my son’s girlfriend and one is for her twin sister. Both girls are graduating from high school this week.
I am so appreciative to my bee mates for helping me make the blocks for these quilts and I know the girls will love them as they have grown up with quilts from their Mom and their Grandma too.
I put a cute Anne Kelle print from Robert Kaufman on the borders of Matryoshka dolls and used striped Essex linen for the binding.
The back is an ombré dots wideback by Vanessa Christenson for Moda.
I am so pleased to have finished these two quilts in time for the graduation and can’t wait for the girls to receive them!
Thank you for visiting my blog today!
