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!
