Pave the Way quilt top

I've made a resolution to post more often, and to share more of my bee blocks, WIPs, and finishes. Here's my most recent finish. I finished up this quilt top yesterday. Planning on giving the finished quilt to one of my daughters. Originally I had intended to use white for the sashing, but I'm out of white. How can this be? I used to buy it by the bolt, and I think I'd better get another one fast. I'm actually glad I didn't have the white on hand, because I'm very happy with the soft look the Kona Ash gives it. I'm debating on how to quilt it though. I was originally planning on hand quilting vines in the sashing using lavender thread, but now I'm not so sure. Ideas?

I'm still here

I know I've been MIA. I promise I'm still here. I've been working like a mad fool on bee blocks and trying to finish up a quilt for a graduation gift.
We've been having some nice weather this week. Lots of sun!!! Really nice that it's not raining (or snowing!) for a change. The kiddos and hubby were out swinging in the backyard, and I (finally!) have a photo of my hubs with the kiddos. Now if only they could smile! I'll leave you for now with a photo of the loves on my life..
