This quilt was a collaboration of many wonderful quilters from two different quilt bees.
The front was completed with the help of my quilt bee buddies from the Salt Lake Modern Quilt Guild. Each member of our bee did two strings blocks for me. I completed 16 more to finish this top. All of the fabrics are from my stash. This has to be one of my favorite color combos of all time. The finished size is 72" x 72".
The back resulted from one round of the 4x5 Modern Quilt bee. The idea behind that bee is to make 5 of the same block for 5 different quilters in their desired colors. If you do the bee all four quarters you have 20 sampler blocks for a fun quilt. I chose not to continue past the first round. I was just trying to do too much, and some things had to go. I got some really fun blocks and didn't want them to go to waste so I came up with this arrangement for the quilt back.
I did fairly tight loopy quilting. I was a little concerned about all of these seams and wanted them tacked down quite well.
This quilt goes perfectly with my blue chair! Definitely my favorite stash buster of the month.
