Blogger's Quilt Festival

AmysCreativeSide

 
Hello and welcome to my blog.
If you are a regular, you get the joy (haha) at looking at this quilt a second time. :)
I have been quilting for just over a year and I absolutely love it.
  Since, I began quilting I just adored the hand-appliqued and quilted beauties that I spied around. 
I dreamed  of making my own. 
This summer, I spent it working on this.
 

I finished up this quilt in about 8 weeks.
The hexagons are all hand-pieced together and then
hand appliqued onto the backing.
  
 
I wanted a modern approach to a traditional design.


 
I decided to then hand quilt it together with the same echoing
hexagons throughout the quilt.
I used Aurifil 12 wt. thread throughout. 
It was quilted with 5 different colors.
 
 
 
 


I hope you enjoyed your little stop during the Blogger's Quilt Festival!

  9. Amy, I am thinking you need to write a pattern for this quilt. The more I look at it the more I (and I bet others) would like to make it. The idea is too cool, the corners unique and I just plain like it a lot.
