Honeycomb


Here is another example of the possibilities of English Paper Piecing. I was honoured to have "Honeycomb" included in the Canadian Quilters' Association National Juried Show last year in Kamloops, BC. The background is pieced with a "coffin" shape, and the bees are appliqued in cotton and silk. The pieced wings were a challenge to make and are my favourite part of this wall quilt.

Dudette, you need a close-up of those wings, 'cause they deserve to be seen!

oh my goodness, this is lovely. I've pieced a lot of hexagons, but somehow never saw a honeycomb. but you did and it's perfect!
