TGIFF - Bee Round Robin

I did it!!!  I finished my January OMG goal.



Winter is depressing because it's cold and dark...and because it's hard to get decent photos.


Quilting is a free motion stipple with black thread in the black background -- very hard on the eyes.  I also did some quilting in the star.


I was 6-inches too short with Kona Peacock for the binding, so had to add a little bit of Kumquat.  Not that I'm complaining about that.  😊


I used Kona Black for the background and Lipstick, Flame, Orange, and Kumquat for the centre star.

This is also one of my Q1 FAL goals.

  5. The quilt turned out beautifully. I think the effort to quilt in the black only was worth it and really helps the colors pop that much more. The quilt reminds me of arcade video games. :)
