a bee quilt

So, my month for this quilting bee was April of 2010. It’s about time I got these blocks sewn together into a quilt top, right?!

I think my month snuck up on me, so I opted for a perennial favorite – blocks in the style of Denyse Schmidt’s Drunk Love in a Log Cabin (and yes, I had members of the Block Party quilting bee make similar blocks – love them!).

I had a piece of a great purple floral print that I asked each member to include somewhere in their block. The greens, purples and grays were all pulled from that print. Looking at it now, I really love how light and springy this one turned out!

Thank you to all the members of Bee Imaginative for these gorgeous blocks!

Thanks for all your wonderful comments about my crazy unfinished quilt problem! I should let you know that even though I’ve been tempted to start on a new quilt, each time I’ve made myself stop and do something towards finishing that pile of quilts. I have a backing made, 2 are now basted, a bit of fabric has been ordered for backings, and I’ve been poring over Angela’s new book for quilting inspiration. Hopefully a few finished quilts will start showing up here soon!
