I sent out a mixture of fabrics in tangerine and eggplant shades, mainly based on the Sugar Pop fabrics. I added a few other prints, like the Mendocino orange octopi, the Hope Valley Canyon Stripe in Fiesta, as well as Kona Tangerine and Eggplant. Each bee member added some additional fabrics, which I love. Each block is so different!
I've been enjoying these blocks, but I wasn't quite ready to work with them.
This weekend, though, I finally took a photo of all the lovely blocks I received.
Aren't they incredible? Ack! I cannot wait to finish this quilt and enjoy it. Please click through on the photo to see the credits for each block. I sewed them together on Saturday, and started working on the border. I'm not sashing the blocks, as I thought sewing them right next to each other added to the fun wonkiness.
I bought extra fabric in some of my favorite Sugar Pop prints, as well as pieces of the solids, so I'll be working on the backing soon. I haven't decided how I'd like to quilt this. Since I've never done free motion quilting, I'm not sure this is the project I'd like to try first.
Any quilting thoughts/suggestions?
