Tutorial: Honey of a Preemie baby quilt

Making quilts for the tiniest of newborns, preemies, is something Linda of Buzzing and Bumbling says she loves to do when she has enough time. Of this self-described simple project she explains:

A simple bow-tie pieced bee with 3-D wings is the center for this easy little quilt. It is perfect for a charity quilt or can be made a little larger as a crib quilt.

Go HERE to get the scoop on why she sews for preemies, plus get the tute.

    Do you have a pattern for this? Out theme for the fair this year is “Year of the Honey Bees.” We have a preemie quilt contest and all the preemie quilts go to a Neonatal Intestive Care Unit. I think this would be a great one to do.

    Hi Nell,
    I agree it would make a lovely quilt. I love that you are sewing for preemies. On a personal note, I’m a twin and we were preemies. I see that the blogger I featured only gave general directions for making the bumblebee applique. I did a search on Google for a free bumblebee pattern you might download. I didn’t find a free one, but close, you can get a really cute one from AngelLea’s online shop for only $2.30, if she’s still in business. http://www.artfire.com/ext/shop/product_view/AngelLeaDesigns/4914958/bumblebee_applique_pattern_pdf_bee_applique_template/supplies/handmade_supplies/patterns

    Good luck and do share some photos with all of us of your finished quilts.
