Sew Modern Bee Quilt done!!!

Today I finished my Sew Modern Bee Quilt.
I had added a bigger border to the quilt top in order to make this a bed size quilt.
It's now a long twin size.

I'm going to donate this quilt to my Quilt Guild's Community Quilts Project.
Every year this group tries to gather twin size quilts to send to orphanages around Chernobyl, Ukraine.
I thought this quilt would be perfect for that.

I had fun trying a bunch of different free motion quilting designs.

Some I really loved and others....well, they are okay.
The border fabric I had won in a giveaway from Contemporary Cloth and the backing is also from my stash.

I haven't washed it yet, but it should crinkle up nicely!!

I hope you like it.
One more UFO off my list.
And an OPAM finish for May.

The colors are quite nice!!

I finished the carpenter's star from way back when I had told you I was going to do it! It's on my blog!

I love that it's going to such a good cause. Someone will be very happy to cuddle with it!

Hooray! It's so wonderful to see our bee blocks transformed (your quilting experiments are terrific!!!) AND to know that they now will be going to a very good cause. Thanks so much for sharing this, Ariane :)
