Best Bee Quilt Ever: Blogger's Quilt Festival

Every year Amy hosts this great event called the Blogger's Quilt Festival.  If you haven't heard of it, you REALLY need to check it out!  Soooooooooo many inspirational quilts and new bloggers to discover!  This year I'm entering two quilts, one is my "Best Bee Quilt Ever" in the Group/Bee Category (here's the other one):

Bee quilt complete
I pretty much think this is the best quilt ever made, but I may be bias!  :)  This quilt is the culmination of two bees, The VIBs and the Twice Around the Block groups.  The ladies were each give a piece of every print of Anna Maria Horner's Good Folks and asked to make a block constructed of half-square triangles.  The results blew me away!

Best.Bee.Quilt.Ever.
This is a little pre-quilting shot.

"K" monogram
I had it professionally custom quilted by Krista Withers and she totally killed it!  See that fabulous "K" she worked in there?  

front/back
I decided on another Anna Maria Horner print for the backing (from Field Study).

I adore this quilt and it certainly holds a special place in my heart (and on my couch!)  Hope you all enjoy the Festival and blog hopping!  Psssst!  Vote for me! :)
