This is our entry for the Group/Bee Quilt category.
It is a quilt I stitched with my Romanian friends.
We learned a lot - about hand stitching, friendship, patience, determination, passion and  love for quilting.

We named it "Together in a Friendship World".
The top is hand pieced  - using English paper piecing technique.

- just to see the size -91'' x 91'' -
The beginning of piecing.

It took us 3 months to stitch the top.


The flower sphere is appliqued onto the scrappy hexagon background.

-the back with paper templates-
I did the quilting, on my industrial sewing machine.



Some stats:
- hand pieced
- machine quilted
- 91'' x 91''
- fabric: Kona cotton
- quilted with Aurifil thread
- category: group/bee quilt.
