First Birthday Bee Quilt

 I finished up the first Birthday Quilting Bee Quilt today.  It is going to Joshua in Georgia who will be 13 on June 2.  I will mail it out this weekend while I am in the States.  
A big thank you to my mom who was here visiting last weekend--she helped me figure out how to make all of the blocks fit together--she came up with the pattern and we added the player fabric which I found in my stash.  There were a couple of blocks with yellow in them that I am going to make a matching pillow with on Friday--so if those were your blocks--don't despair--I am going to use them!
Thanks to Heather, Joan, Linda, Jeanine, Vicki, Finn, Sunny, Tina, Emily, Lisa, Amy and Ashley for helping with this quilt!!  I think Joshua will LOVE it!!

I couldn't imagine how these blocks were all going to come together but this outdid anything I could have thought of.

Love it! I'm really looking forward to seeing the other quilts too! Love how you (and your mother) got all the blocks together.

How big is your "stash"? You always seem to have the perfect fabric or part of it somewhere stashed away! That is the sign of a serious seamstress. The quilt is great and perfect for a basketball enthusiast. I really like the simple sitching.

Wonderful job on combining all the different blocks. Can hardly wait to see the rest of the Bee quilts!
