Stash Bee :: Finished Quilt ::

Another quilt finish photographed yesterday and ready to share!  Now I just have five quilt tops waiting to be quilted and finished.  One is a baby quilt but the others are lap - twin size, so I'm trying to see how many I can get to before 2014 comes to a close! 

This one was made by the lovely ladies of Stash Bee Hive 6.  I saw a similar, lattice style quilt block a ways back and kept it in my brain, but could never find it again.  I think it used larger pieces, but I wanted scrappier and smaller.  I wrote a tutorial for it right here.



 Every one in the 11 person bee was supposed to make one bee, but a few people made me two.  I made a few extras to get to a 4x5 block setting.  


I just love all of the fabrics in this quilt - I could look at it forever!  I'm so glad I went with the gray cotton + steel basic for the binding fabric - I was really torn on what to do.  I think I'll be using these fabrics for bindings again.

Once again, I quilted this with all over swirls using FMQ.  I know, I'm kind of a one trick pony with my limited FMQ skills.  One of the aforementioned to-be-quilted tops may get something fancier, so watch out!

 
 I love how bright and cheery this one is.  Thanks to all of my Hive 6 Ladies, it has been a great year!
