Mod Mosaic Bee Quilt FINISHED

This quilt was begun almost exactly two years ago by my good friends who participated in the Boston Modern Quilt Guild bee block exchange. I finally finished it this past weekend! It took me about one week to do this jagged/puzzle piece type of straight line quilting. I used my walking foot and simply started at the top of the quilt and moved the quilt around to create a geometric/boxy random type of pattern. It was a little tedious sometimes but worth it I think.
Participants in the Flickr Hip to Bee Square group also contributed to this quilt. I also ended up making several myself, in order to have a 5 x 5 layout.

The quilt measures 63" x 63".

I backed and bound this quilt with some Urban Garden fabric I've had in my stash for a while.

A big thanks to all those who contributed blocks for this quilt! I am so pleased to have this finished and it's a great size for lounging under on the couch.

WOW! What a beautiful quilt!! You definitely have more patience to put something like this together than I do!! HAHA! I'm doing a 1" by 1" square scrap quilt and I've only gotten through ONE block of it! ;-)

Plus, I love that makes me love this quilt just that much more ;-) Thank you for sharing this!

I love how this came out!

I did a very similar block for my quilt bee and I am torn between adding sashing and not - can you tell me a bit why you decided to do it without sashing? The original Oh, Fransson quilt has some great negative space in it - but I can't decide! Argh!
