Bee Ginghams – Sixty Four Quilt

Hi Quilty Friends and Lori Holt fans! I’m Melanie from A Bit of Scrap Stuff Blog and Instagram. Today I’m sharing the Sixty-Four Quilt I made with the fabulous new Lori Holt Basic – Bee Ginghams!!!!

Just look at all the lovely ginghams! The colors and variety of ginghams are absolutely perfect! Plus three ginghams are named Melanie too!

I kept admiring the happy ginghams while I planned which quilt to make from Lori Holt’s new book: Scrappiness is Happiness. I chose the Sixty-Four Quilt because I was able to make 9 Gingham Blocks using almost all of the Bee Ginghams in the collection!

To make the Bee Ginghams: Sixty-Four Quilt, I decided to create one color way per block. Each block varies in the number of ginghams … some blocks have two or three or four gingham prints each. I then organized each individual 2.5″ square into different patterns based on the number of gingham prints in each block. I love the variety this gave my quilt!

I’m sure you also want to make your own Bee Ginghams: Sixty-Four Quilt so let’s chat about supplies…

The Sixty-Four Quilt has fun quilty math. Each Sixty-Four Block contains 64 squares and the finished quilt is a 64″ square !

I used the most perfect backing fabric from Lori Holt Bee Basics Busy Patchwork Multi! I even included the sweet sentiments print on the fabric edge when I pieced my backing fabric together.

This quilt is so perfect for a swirl … loooooove it!
