FREE Pattern Feature – Life is Sweet Quilt

We have a simple and “sweet” FREE PATTERN to share with you today!

The Life is Sweet Quilt features fabric from Tara Reed’s new Bee’s Life collection, and measures 39″ x 58″, making this a great lap quilt.

We are seriously in love with the Bee’s life collection! Featuring buzy bees, honeycomb, and beehives in a simple gold and black color palette, these fabrics are brimming with classic charm and artistry.

The Life is Sweet quilt uses the 24″ x WOF fabric panel as its focal point. Take a look at the beautiful messaging on this panel. “Bee Positive,” “Bee Friendly,” Bee the Best You Can Bee.” Such hopeful and uplifting phrases!

The panel is framed with three simple borders, which makes this quilt a snap to put together.

We used the Honey Bees print for the first border, followed by the Black Honeycomb, and we used the Parchment Beehives print for the final border.


Our quilter used a fun honeypot and beehive design for the quilting, which adds a lovely element to the quilt, don’t you think?

The Life is Sweet quilt would make a lovely gift, and because it is such a simple project, you can make two — one to give and one to keep! You can download the free pattern HERE to get started on your very own Life is Sweet quilt.
