Great Granny Squared

I think this is my fifth Stitch Tease Bee finished quilt. Our bee has been together for over 5 years and although some of the members have changed, the talent and generosity in our bee remains constant. Last year I asked the girls to make Great Granny Squared blocks for me. My color scheme was influenced by a Fat Quarter bundle of Enchanted by Camelot Fabrics.

Here is the beautiful quilt , all finished and taken on a photo shoot when we spent a long weekend along the central coast of California last month. We were so lucky to have found this covered bridge in a winery of all places.

My buddy and fellow bee mate, Jennifer of the Knotted Thread, quilted it for me on her long arm machine with a beautiful all over feather motif.
For the binding and backing I used the yellow and plum floral print from the Enchanted line.

I set the blocks on point helping to increase the size of the quilt. It  finishes at 85" square.

Thanks to my lovely bee mates I have another quilt to remind me of this beautiful quilting community and the friendships I have made. I am so glad I started this bee. These ladies have become like daughters and sisters to me and I can honestly say I love them all.

I love the pallette you've used. I'm in a bee that have been together for two years now and we are getting to be firm friends.

I don’t know what is more beautiful-your words about your bee buddies or the quilt itself!. Love this so much!
