Tasting Table Tuesday - Bee Happy!

Before I show you Today's Tasting Table project, I have to share just one (ok - maybe two) family pictures with you.  My granddaughter LOVED all the little gifts I made for her 2nd birthday.  It was so fun to watch her open everything and play with them.  She put the apron on all by herself (yeah!)...
...and gave her mother and me a lesson on how to diaper and dress a baby doll.  So cute!

Now for Today's Tasting Table post...
Another finished project!  Woo Hoo!  I'm happy to say that I'm totally thrilled with my new quilting rulers!  I finished quilting the entire quilt using gray thread to match the background fabric, but still thought that the four gray pinwheels in the center needed more movement.  I really wanted them to look like they were spinning, so I got courageous and added some more curved lines using (yikes!) gold-colored thread!!!
It took a lot of nerve on my part because I never use contrasting thread for free-motion (too afraid my hiccups might show), and I didn't use the rulers for this last bit - just freehanded it, using the previous gray curves as a guide.  But I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out - it might not be perfect, but it suits me just fine.

And I used a cute bee fabric for the back, which explains why I've named this quilt "Bee Happy".

Now I'm on a mission to make a new purse for ME!!!  Check back next time for more details on that!
