Small Hexagon Flower

My latest small quilt is a hexagon flower quilt.  This is accomplished through English Paper Piecing, and applique.  Mostly hand work.  Which I rarely do.  However, I challenged myself to do it anyway, and here it is!

I challenged our guild to do English paper piecing, applique or hexagons in a quilt, block or project this month.  I hope they participate.  We had 4 participants in the Carpenter's Wheel, so January must have been a busy month for the group.

While I had time between customer quilts, I quilted three small ones of my own.  First, this blue and white one of my own design.

This next one is a baby quilt (for a future grandchild...if ever I get one).  I made it from pieces left over from doing a store sample quilt.  I have another top almost made that is very similar to this one.

You may have noticed the cuddle fabric on the back.  I love how soft it is.

Next, is a quilt of spinning wheels and bicycle fabric.  I purchased the kit from a store on a shop hop last summer.  It is finished, (Hurrah!), and I'll hang it up in the summer time.

And here is the fabulously fun fabric I used on the back.  Even though I just stippled on most of this quilt, I love the motion of the spirals on the spinning wheels.  I also love the texture the quilting gives it.

What will next month's challenge be?  I'm not sure yet, I have two different ideas, and can't wait to find out which one I do!

Until then,
Keep Sewing!
