Whatever Wednesday

I did some sewing.

And it is quilted.

On the inside, I used a fabric with a bee and some flowers, of course.

My only regret is that I didn't sew in a ribbon to use as a bookmark.

My measurements were too accurate and didn't take into account the thickness of the batting, I guess.

The quilting is very simple, gentle wavy lines, like a bee line.
