Hip (hip horray) bee quilt finished

Just over a year ago, I met Di at the first FQR.  We were having lunch and Di mentioned that she thought she might like to start a bee - "I'd be up for it I said" and not long after, Di got Hipbee's up and running.  My month was November and I asked for Lynnebobsquarepants blocks (I don't think I was overly popular!!!).

Yesterday, I finally finished my quilt - this is also an FAL finish

 
I chose charcoal and different purples, along with some bright fat quarters I had been hoarding



It is hand quilted - I went with a basic flower design, that you can see better from the back


 I made scrappy binding



and I added my siggy blocks (I forgot to add them originally, so had to improvise!)
 
So, I want to say a mahooosive thank you to the lovely ladies who helped me make this quilt

 I would never have done it without your help - I can't tell you how much I love this quilt!!

Also, you may have seen that I have added a feedly follow button.  I love the Feedly blog reader thingy that they have, and the way it imports all your blogs over.  I can highly recommend it.
