More than a year in the making.
I first blogged about this quilt in May of last year, after receiving most of my blocks from the Wonky Bee.
First inspired by a few online examples, and a tutorial found here, I was so excited for an eclectic quilt made by my friends in the bee.
This past April, I finally managed to finish the top at the Stash Bash. I don't know why it took me so long, but I really love how it turned out. I basted it shortly thereafter, but again, stalled out before quilting.
After several FMQ finishes, I was happy to return to a meandering line quilting, mostly straight, with a few waves here and there. It's fairly densely quilted, too, which I love.
The crinkle is so so good.
Never gets old.
I backed it in several favorite prints in cool colors.
I considered giving this one away, but I just can't bear to do so. Each block makes me think of my bee girls: Amanda, Jessica, Melissa, Nicke, and Sara.
And so, my quilt stack is growing.
This is definitely a keeper! I love it Jacey, everything about it actually, and especially the dense quilting!!ReplyDelete
