Blogger's Quilt Festival- My Entry

I have been so excited for the Blogger's Quilt Festival this time! I didn't get the chance to enter in the past 2 because I didn't feel like I had a "worthy quilt". Then I was torn, which quilt should I choose to enter? Will I have it/them finished in time to link up? Stressful, I tell ya! Well, as I was reading Amy's festival introduction post I saw that we can enter TWO quilts! So, I have the one I'm sharing in this post to enter and I'm really really hoping I get the other one I want to enter finished in time to link up!
This is my absolute FAVORITE quilt that I've made to date! I think the reason this is my favorite is because I had the help of some AMAZING girls and it is also my first Bee quilt! (Just wanted to say THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU to the girls in Make It Modern Bee that made these blocks for me!!!) I will always hold this near and dear to my heart!
I love the way it turned out! If you all want to read more about this quilt you can read about it here and if you want to read my post about the block construction you can read about that here.

Let me show ya some more pics, cuz it's such a beauty I just HAVE to share it! LOL!




I love the backing too! I went for a giant pieced wonky log cabin, I think its a great match for the front!
I think this is my favorite pic of it though!
I used an all over design, resembling squares and rectangles meandering along for the quilting on my DSM.

And my stripey/scrappy binding to finish it off! Have I said how much I love this quilt? Cuz' I DO!!!! :-)

I'm entering this into the Group/Bee Quilt category! I'm sure there is going to be some AMAZING quilts in this festival (mainly because there always is!!!) So take a minute (or a few hours like me) and go check out all the wonderful quilts in ALL the different categories!!!! You can also enter to win an amazing Baby Lock Melody machine too, just sayin'! Click here to go to festival intro page!!!

Quilt Stats:
Finished size- Around 75"x75"
Pieced by myself and the AMAZING girls of Make It Modern Bee
Quilted on my DSM using a "wondering square/rectangle" pattern
Design was inspired by Elizabeth Hartman's Craftsy class


Thank you guys for stopping by to check out my entry! (wish me luck on getting the other quilt finished so I can enter it too!!!)

~Hope y'all are having a GREAT day!!!~

What a great quilt and all the more fun because it was stitched by you and your bee friends. I hope you get your other quilt finished too!
