A new month, a new goal. My goal for June in A Lovely Year of Finishes is to finish a quilt top comprised of blocks I received in a bee in 2011. The bee was Bee Europa 2011, the second round of Bee Europa. This month we are starting our fourth round, so I think it is time to finish the quilt from the second.
This is what the fabric looked like before I sent it to the bee members.
And these are the blocks (strips actually) that I got from everyone. They're wonderful aren't they. Here is a gallery to see most of them better.
The quilts from round 1 and round 3 are all finished and they're used regularly on our couch when we watch tv.

So, what am I going to do to finish this quilt top? I want to add low volume print fabric or light colored solids to the ends of each strip to make them all equal in length. The dark green strip is a bit high so I will adjust that one a little. Then I will sew the strips together to form the quilt top. I will keep the rainbow order that I have in the photos. I might add a solid/low volume strip between some sections of strips. It will be a bit improv, so I'm curious how it will all turn out.
