My beautiful quilt top from Another Quilting Bee 2 is done! I am beyond excited!!! Look at this beauty...
It's much prettier in person. I tried but I just couldn't get a good picture. The colors are just much more vibrant in person. I had to clip the quilt top to my gutters in order to get a picture of it. It measures 80"x96" and is by far the largest quilt I've made. I added Kona white around each block I received so it would pop. I really wanted each block to stand out. They were all so beautiful. The sashing and borders is Kona cotton in Tarragon ( which I think is my new favorite green). My niece, who has been very "meh" about all my quilts, loves this one. I don't think I can explain the utter feelings of joy when I look at this quilt. You want to know the cool thing about this quilt top? Because everyone put their own spin on each block, I can tell you who made what block just by looking at it. I did not make a single block. They were all done by my fellow quilting bee participants. My real life friends call my blog friends my "imaginary friends". All I can say is I have the best "imaginary friends" a girl could ever ask for. Thank you from the bottom of my heart to everyone that has contributed a block (or two , or three...)! Ya'll have made me quite a happy girl!
