This quilt started in November of 2012 when I was queen bee and requested a scrappy Depression block. My bee mates were quick to send in beautiful blocks, but I had set them aside for months and months. It was only when I was preparing for the Fat Quarterly Retreat in July 2013 that I realized I could assemble the top and hand it off to Emily for quilting (you can see her work bit better in this post). Done!
The back is Kona Peacock pieced with signature blocks from some of my bee mates. I wish I made other siggy blocks for those who were not able to send in their own...just to have the complete group included. Live and learn.
Ladies, thank you. I think it's absolutely wonderful.
