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.

    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.

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