Crazy 9 Lattice Quilt - February UFO Finished!

Crazy 9 Lattice Quilt
Originally uploaded by maripenquiltmom

I finished this last week and today is sunny so I managed to get a picture.

When I posted this to flckr originally I asked for advice on which fabric to use for binding and it was unanimous for the teal fabric.

So here it is! I love the colors in this; these were all stash fabrics that I've loved at some point. I chose to quilt it using Waterworld pantograph. It's all washed and pleasantly wrinkly.

February Bee Blocks

Beatnik Bee - here are the Amish Diamond and Pinwheel blocks I made for Tracy. She asked that we fussy cut the corners to get a nice flower in the center. The fabric was very nice and these were fun.

The ISQ Bee - Here is the new York Beauty block I made for Jen using the great fabrics she sent. The dark grey fabric was my own and the batik in the inner ring were my additions.

The Maple Leaf Bee - February was my own month so I made a few more blocks so I'll be ready to put it together when the rest of the blocks come in. I previously made some mainly green ones which I posted about here

For most of these blocks I used a tutorial by Elizbeth Hartman of Oh,Fransson.
