Let's Bee 2012 Quilt

When my local quilt group, "The Quilt Block Ladies," went on the shop hop this year, I started collecting a batik from each shop.  Batiks are a type of fabric that I had previously not had too much feeling for, but I'm starting to love them.  When it was suddenly my turn to get fabric sent out for my online group, "Let's Bee Together", luckily I already had fabric on hand, just needed to find a perfect solid to pair the batiks with.  Each member got 2 different batiks and the solid.  I have received blocks back from members Shannon, Sara (no blog)  and Erin and they go quite nicely with the 2 that I made! I tried a photo edit when I uploaded to flickr and so it looks a bit weird, but it does show the colors of each fabric better.
