Quilt Around The World Bee II comes to a close after 2 years!!

I can't believe it has been 2 years since we started the second 'Around The World Quilt Bee' It has been an interesting, informative and at times frustrating experience. During that time we have had parcels go missing, people go missing and all sorts of personal issues delay things moving along, however, almost all 25 quilts are home and only a couple waiting on the last block to be finished. It has been really fun and I have learnt so many new quilting skills and techniques………..and I have one very gorgeous quilt as a result. Here are the last few………….

Christine's blocks had a little holiday in New York for 5 months, so the loop had to be started again, therefore I can only show 10 of these lovelies! Luckily the other 12 did arrive home to join the others!  Christine asked for geometric blocks and my addition is below. 

10 of Christine's blocks off to join the rest!!

This next block is for Joan who requested blue and green stars. When these blocks arrived it was difficult to find a pattern that had not already been done!!! I can't wait to see the finished quilt...

 22 gorgeous blocks for Joan

Last but certainly not least is Elizabeth's 1/2 square triangle block. I had been sending all my parcels to her for the whole Bee, so I felt a little pressure to come up with something very special for her. I couldn't resist fussy cutting this bird for the centre!

All 23 of Elizabeth's blocks ready to head home!!
