Historical and Cultural Information About this Quilt

IfQmakerF007a
Made entire quilt
PartDesF007cPattSourceF065AddNotesF066
When I showed the 6 blocks I had made to Mary Schafer, she said she had a smaller size Honey Bee for crib size which I used. Then I didn't want to waste the 6 blocks so I made enough for a full size. I ran out of the material I was using so Mary suggested I add a flower in the alternate blocks so I could use the 2nd colors in the applique swag border.
