cottage quilt

It was probably over 2 years ago now that I was involved in the Cottage Quilting Bee, and I have finally put my quilt together and I think it turned out so great.  
I received soooo many blocks, and it was so fun to figure out where to put them all.  I ended up framing them on the front in white. 
I pieced my back with orange fabrics that I had along with my remaining blocks. 
I quilted it in large loops.  It's not perfect, but I do like the effect.
and an orange stripe binding to finish it off.  I am loving this color of orange.   A big thanks to all those friends who contributed to this quilt.  I love it.

  4. This is great! I love how all the blocks look together. I just finished putting on sashing on my cottage quilt. Hopefully I'll get the quilting done soon and be able to post it. Thanks for the beautiful pictures!
