SMQ III - Another awesome Bee quilt!

Here is why sewing bees are great:
Let me just say I love this quilt! The design is loosely based on "Nap Like an Egyptian" from the Sunday Morning Quilts book. As I went through the book one more time in advance of my month as queen for round III, I thought I would take a shot at this one since no one has selected it in the past. My Bee Mates came through like champs with triangles, triangles and more triangles!
I started randomly piecing them into large triangles adding a light pink solid and other matching scraps as I went. The came the dilemma once I ran out of triangles. The quilt top was not quite as big as I wanted. I needed to add borders but wanted to keep the modern edge. I decided to add a floral print to either side and I am pleased with the end result both compositionally and in size.
Here are a few glamour shots!
