Stash Bee - my fave finish

Just last week, I had another exciting finish: my Stash Bee quilt. In July of 2014, I sent out instructions and a sample palette for a Wonky Pinwheel block (inspired by Greenleaf Goods) to 12 lovely ladies. Over the course of the next several months, the blocks came rolling in.

In early October, I got the blocks sewn into a top and was very pleased with what I was seeing.
Sometimes my bee mates included fabrics that I wouldn't always have necessarily chosen, but they all work together! I even have a couple that are closer to silk than cotton and they give a nice little surprise feel when you come across them. That's what made this project so fun - other perspectives make this quilt far more interesting.    
The gold and grey floral adds a silky surprise
In an effort to force myself to get this one finished, I put it on my Q1 list and it worked! 
 The back was a bit of an experiment. As I fancy myself addicted to paper piecing lately, I decided to play around a little. I used this letter set from Craftsy to make myself a label.

 The back is half Kona ash and half Kona white and just love how it came together around the letters and the binding is Kona navy. You can see that the quilting is a simple diagonal and a double straight gridline.

Ready for naptime!
