This original, one-of-a-kind, 16 3/4" x 22 3/4" quilt features a floral motif and is highlighted with a free motion, machine embroidered bumble bee.

The flowers are made from hand dyed fabric that has been fused and then raw edge appliqued. The bumble bee is an original design that has been thread painted on the machine with free motion embroidery. The geometric fabric elements which support the floral arrangement were applied by turn under machine applique. Dense free motion machine quilted floral shapes and parallel diagnonal lines emphasize the focal theme.

Animation of the bee is suggested by a curving line of gold colored glass beads that have been individually sewn to the quilt.

The quilt is double fold bound with mitered corners and handstitched to the reverse and the hanging sleeve's top is imbeded under the binding.
The piece is signed and dated, also on the reverse.
