The tour starts over at Film in the Fridge so head on over!

I got this top, from the last bee I was in – Bee Imaginative, finished up yesterday!

Bee Imaginative Quilt top

I love it. I think that when it comes to bee quilts, it’s a balancing act of asking for a block that allows for creativity but will also lead to a group of blocks that work together… Thanks to all of the bee members for their great blocks!!

The top started with these fabrics…

…and a request to be inspired by this photo.

(which I discovered over here on Cathy of California‘s blog. BTW – if you don’t read her blog you should. Nothing but inspiration all the time.)

I can’t wait to quilt it. I might long arm it… I’m determined to make this my Summer Of The Longarm! I will get past that learning curve!!

My twin sister, Cate, is a film editor.  Sometimes that comes in handy!!  Check out this great promo that she put together for Block Party.

The blog tour is starting on June 20th so say tuned for more details!
