Sew Modern Bee quilt top in the works!

Hi everyone!

On Tuesday I did some sewing on my quilt top for the Sew Modern Bee. My month was June. I asked for a 12.5 inch block. I wanted the girls to make a small 6 to 8 inch traditional block for the center, then border it with a small white border that finished at 0.5 inches, then a Kona Coal border to bring the block to 12.5 inches.

I love all the blocks I received. I then used one of the Hunky Dory Aqua prints to sash each block and put a star in between the center blocks. I'm not sure if I will put another border around the quilt, or just quilt it the way it is. But I do have a lot of left over small pieces.

I hope you like it. I had fun working on this top. Thanks to all the girls from the Sew Modern Bee for making me such wonderful blocks.
