{lou}bee quilt

my last quilt done from 2013. this is our {lou}bee quilt from 2012/13, where we each picked/designed a block to put in a sewing themed quilt. you can read some of my posts about this quilt in process here and here.
it was a bit of a puzzle to figure out how to lay it out. i paper pieced 8 {bee}blocks, the free pattern from badskirt, one per {bee}member. the rest was a use of the fabric i had leftover and a few pieces of specific sewing-themed fabric i had.
i decided to quilt it using straight lines in hopes that {besides, of course, it being my favorite} it would be a unifying but not destracting element to the quilt. i think it worked.
the back was pieced with leftovers and a timeless treasures retro sewing machine fabric i about died over for this quilt. this is such a special quilt to remind me of the sweet community of sewing ladies i've the pleasure of knowing.
