One of the perks of starting a quilting bee is getting to have your blocks created first. The downside is that you are then expected to turn around and turn them into a quilt first.
Here are almost all of the blocks laid out (I’m still missing one) and I have to say this was really hard to photograph! I ended up laying them out on the kitchen floor and then standing on the dining room table. The picture isn’t fabulous but you get the idea.
You can see better pictures of the individual blocks here.
My plan is to square these up and start sashing them. I’m going to border each with 2 inches of white and 6 inches of blue to tone down the overall look a bit. I’m also being a slacker and trying to make it into a larger quilt without making too many more blocks 🙂
