Live Piecefully 2 Quilting Bee

Back in 2010 I participated in an online quilting bee.  In February of that year, I sent off some very much loved original Flea Market Fancy, along with some other coordinating prints.  I crossed my fingers that my mostly traditional bee members would come up with some fun designs based on my "simple vs. complex" theme.  Given that my group was somewhat flaky at times, I was super excited to get back 8 of the 11 blocks...

It took me about 2.5 years (whoa, what???) but I finally sat down to finish the three missing blocks, plus the 12th that I needed to make anyway.  Given that the colors are pretty muted, I decided to sash it in Kona Coal, and bind in a super hot pink Heather Ross print.  The back is some very much loved and hoarded prints.

I can't believe it took me this long to finish this quilt!  I'm so glad I finished it, just in time for cooler weather!

Great blocks! And good job finishing it!

Aw, thanks! I was contemplating giving it away, but it's really small--baby quilt sized. So it's mine, and I'm ok with that. :O)
