My finished Solid Seven bee quilt

 As promised, I have a completed bee quilt to share with you today! The ladies of the Solid Seven bee are so amazing. You can read more about them and our different prompts of 2018 here.
Back in November, I asked the gals to all make me Christmas trees, any pattern/tutorial, original improv trees, whatever they wanted. I did give them a color palette of teal/aqua, red, green and pink but beyond that I gave them very little guidance. Did they ever come through for me!

Such a great variety of trees came my way, all shapes and sizes. My local quilty friend Chris insisted that I needed a gnome in my forest (she was right). She was sweet to make me one. Piecing all of the blocks together was great fun. My friend Diann at Happy Quilts provided the awesome longarm quilting. I finished it all off with a faced binding, mostly because I really couldn't settle on a color to bind it in. I think this works perfectly. The finished quilt measures 58X60.

I can't wait for my next turn to select a bee prompt!

big thanks to my handsome quilt holder hubby!

That's gorgeous. It amazing how those trees have worked sew well together and Diann did an amazing job of quilting... great to have a nice tall hubby to hold it up for the photo.

Whoever did the top center block with the ornament hanging from the tree branch is amazing…
