In the Siblings Together Quilting Bee (2) I took a 2nd turn at Queen Bee for February.

 

STB2 February '17 Block

 

Spurred on by Sue’s donated wonky star blocks, we all embraced our inner ‘wonk’ and made lots more bright and beautiful star blocks.

 

And here is the finished quilt:

What a blast of colour!

 

I’ve a few thank you’s to mention with regards to this quilt.

Firstly a big thank you goes out to Sue and my bee mates for contributing lots of blocks to make this colourful quilt a possibility.

 

And also thanks to a good friend for quilting it so beautifully too!

Finally, thank you to Sarah (Narcoleptic in a Cupboard) for contributing the Ikea backing.  It was the perfect backing for the scrappy mix of colours in the front!

Measuring 60″ x 72″, this quilt will be going in the post this week well in time for this year’s summer camps.  It is sent with our love and blessings, knowing that it will bring comfort to a young person separated from her siblings by the care system.
