Blogger's Quilt Festival


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!

Autumn Applique Blog Hop

Welcome to Day Three of the

Hop Along

and a big thanks to Bea for organizing it
and a big thanks to Electric Quilt for a fabulous giveaway!
It is no surprise that I love to play
with my EQ7 software.
I have worked up several quilting projects on it.

For my Fall sample, I used all the shapes on the
left side bar.  First, I started with a circle,
I flattened it out a bit.

Added a few half moons to each side of the circle

Made a rectangle and then used the edit tool to make a stem

Added a couple leaf shapes

Colored the pumpkin, you could use this as a pillow or 

If you like Halloween, you can add a cute little face on it with a couple triangles and
a rectangle that I played with a bit for the mouth.

It is super easy to work up a wall hanging.

Or a table runner.  

Just think,
You won't have to buy any more patterns...
You will be able to make your own.

Beware of things that go bump in the night.

Feel like someone might be watching you?
Well, your worries just might be true.
Beware of all the creepy crawlers
They are liable to make you holler.
I hoped you enjoyed your little stay
