I'm so excited to share this one with you. This is one I finished up while on my blogging hiatus and went out today to get some better pics to share with you!
Did any of y'all do the Virtual Quilting Bee over at Diary of a Quilter? How about the Star Surround Quilt Along over at Happy Quilting? If so, you may recognize parts of my version....
I made the Virtual Quilting Bee blocks and loved them but they were so small, and if anyone knows me, they know I "don't do" small quilts. So the blocks sat around for months until inspiration struck...
I decided to take the lessons I learned from Melissa and her Star Surround Quilt Along and use the surrounds to frame out my Virtual Quilting Bee blocks.
PERFECT!!!! Can you tell I'm in love with this quilt top??
There's a closer look at some of the blocks. You can see where the VQB blocks are in the center of the surrounds.
The fabrics are from a fat quarter tower I pulled out of my stash and finally put to a good use. They are Strawberry Lemonade by Me and My Sister. This is actually the second quilt I've gotten out of that fat quarter tower so I think I definitely got my money's worth!!!
Linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts and Quilt Story and My Quilt Infatuation, and Val's Quilting Studio for her Tuesday Archive party.
Thanks for stopping by!
