Hive 6 January Finished Quilt

This is my Hive 6 quilt from January.  I can't believe how long this one took me to finish, but I guess 2014 was a busy year for me!  I made some extra blocks, and some lovely hive mates contributed more than one block, to bring the total blocks up to 20.  Here's the original post with the block tutorial. I love scrappy quilts and I love lots of color.  I'm so happy this design worked out how I hoped.

I so appreciate the tiny bits of beautiful fabric everyone picked out for me as well as the variety in the low volume background squares.  This is such a joy to look at.  I can find something new to love every time I curl up with it.

I quilted free motion swirls all over and bound it with a basic from cotton + steel  in gray.  

Thank you so much to my hive mates in Hive 6, I will treasure this forever!

This did turn out wonderfully, Courtney! It's a great design. I have about 5 blocks of my own. Makes me want to make more!
