Stash Bee Quilt finished

It was a long time ago when I asked the lovely ladies from Stash Bee to make me log cabin blocks. This was the start of an amazing journey. So this was what I was asking for:

After all that thinking and searching for quilts this was what I chose for my month. An easy block to make me my quilt. The ladies were really fast and the blocks arrived one after the other. Soon I could lay them out and make a little "picnic" ...

But this was the end! There was Christmas coming and New Year, swaps and more swaps and the blocks were still waiting to be finished. I had this quilt two times on my Finish A Long list until now! It is really finished.

I love all the colors and I am so happy there were at least 5 minutes sunshine to make a pic. It was not that easy as it is really windy and cold at the moment. Looks like no one told the sun it is May and it should be a little bit warmer.  A huge thank you to all the ladies from Hive #2. I so love this quilt!

I only quilted it along the blocks. I am so minimalistic but on the back I used a fleece to have a cosy blanket to snuggle in - it is still freezing cold here - and it is very hard with these elastic fabric on the back. The binding is scrappy as the whole quilt with stripes I just found in my stash.

So finally I have one quilt done this year and a finish for the QAL 2 Finish A Long 2013!


  1. That is such a very beautiful quilt. Love all that colour. Great bee quilt to have!

  2. Der ist schön geworden - die vielen verschiedenen Blocks und dann die Kombination daraus :)

  3. It's absolutely gorgeous A - I love the converging corners block and a great bee block as making a whole quilt of them can be tough going (I made one for my mum at Christmas!)
