Default Life of the Honey Bee Quilt

I just finished my first pieced quilt, my second quilt over all. The first one I posted pictures of in the machine embroidery section because it was mostly done on my embroidery machine.
The quilt is a queen sized, with 80/20 cotton/poly batting and fireside fleece for the backing and was sewn and quilted on my Janome 9400. The quilting is a combination of straight line quilting with the accufeed foot (yellow border), decorative quilt stitch #20 (grey borders), some stitch in the ditch between borders, and free motion quilting every where else. I'm pretty happy with it over all. It came out a lot yellower than I anticipated but I learned a lot doing this quilt and I'm looking forward to my next one.
Thank you for looking.

Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.
