Still, I have a finish to share!
Almost 2 years ago, my sweet blogging friend Di invited me and a few other friends to form a new round robin bee. We picked a theme and over the course of the next year, we secretly made for each other.
I asked for scrappy curves, and my bee mates didn't disappoint.
Di assembled my blocks perfectly and in spring this year I received my gorgeous flimsy - an eclectic, one of a kind quilt top!
I quilted it with alternate 1 1/2" and 2 1/2" diagonal crosshatch straight lines and bound it using a couple (on the basis I never have enough of anything) of different Anna Maria Horner Drawing Room prints.
I wanted a darker binding to frame the blocks, and I think the colours work perfectly. I used a bamboo and cotton batting from my mum's local quilt shop and the backing is Pagoda Hill by Tina Givens. The quilt measures 72" square.
It's such a pretty quilt, and I can't thank my bee mates enough. It really is one of a kind!
Top Row (left to right): Di's wonderful Drunkard's path block, Katy's beautiful abstract appliqued blocks and my clamshells.
Middle Row: Susan's gorgeous portholes in her signature bright colours, Helen's amazing Dresden block that reminds me of millefiori every time I look at it, and Di's beautiful lemon and limes block.
Bottom Row: My lozenges using my quick curve ruler, Danny's beautiful appliqued pebbles and Hadley's exquisite New York Beauty!
Thank you my friends - if I'm not checking your blogs....know that I'm thinking of you every time I look at this quilt.
