The latest bee quilt

Happy new year!

This is one of the very few quilts I managed to get done in 2014 - this one was just in time for christmas and was gifted properly. The inspiration came from the QAL by Material Girl Quilts - though I must admit that I followed no instructions and made the blocks up myself. But there is only so much you can do with HST so this one resembles her quilt a lot. 

The lovely ladies at Fleißige Beenchen helped me with this quilt - half of the blocks were done by them. I free motion quilted each block on its own, added borders between the blocks and joined them with the quilt-as-you-go method. The quilting was fun like this way, but the block joining was so much more tedious then usual. I don't know if I will use this method again in the foreseeable future.
And now: pictures of quilting :)
