Commemorative Quilt

I made a commemorative quilt for the Foote Family Association raffle held in July 2015 in Salt Lake City, Utah.

I love the "row along" 2014 pattern by American Quilting with its beehive, hexie flowers, and bees. 

I thought it would make a great centerpiece for a quilt made in honor of a family event in Utah, the Beehive State.

I quilted it by machine except for the hand quilting around the beehive and the flower vines.

I included some orphan blocks in the backing.

My maternal grandmother was a Foote, so I dedicated this quilt to her.

My sister, Jolene, ended up with this quilt.  I couldn't be happier!  I like it so much that I have a top completed for myself as well.  Now for the quilting!

It's gorgeous! And how fun that Jolene went home with it.
