Bee-utiful QAL {Block 13 – Bee Romantic}


NOTE: This quilt-a-long has wrapped up. If you are looking for the full set of embroidery patterns and quilt assembly instructions, please visit the final post {here}.

This block has a special place in my heart. Not only was it one of the first blocks I shared from this bee-utiful quilt, it was also inspired by my wedding.


We had a small, intimate outdoor ceremony, complete with adorable vintage styling.

The basket on this vintage bicycle was where our wedding gifts were collected.

Spoiler alert: I have no idea who this bicycle belongs to, or where it came from. LOL

And so, I used this sweet bicycle and my wedding flowers as my inspiration when drawing this block.

    That’s so sweet! I’ve just discovered your quilt-along too, after hearing about it on a blog or two. So I’ve merrily printed off the designs and hope to start stitching soon.
