Blogger’s Quilt Festival


I came across couple of posts about Blogger’s Quilt Festival. There are so many incredible quilts that I wondered if I should join in or not. I didn't feel qualified enough as I only made two quilts so far. On the other hand I told myself there is nothing to loose. What's the worst scenario? Nobody is going to show up but I can handle that. It already happened to me with the Festival entry. So here I am and the story of my first quilt.
At first I only wanted to try some tutorials from Hegaxon Quilt Festival but I really liked the result so I started thinking I should make baby quilt. My very first post with first few blocks is here. While working on it I realized it's just the right time for me to make regular size quilt. I started it with scraps but added few fabrics later on. It's pretty much mixture of everything I wanted to try. Some hand stitched appliqué and different kinds of hexagons. I also tried hand quilting. More pics can be found here. I used the hand stitching for the top and batting only than I used walking foot for the very first time to quilt all three layers including backing. The back side is very simple. If you spot some color order in there I'll be glad as I spent a lot of time just to match it in some way. Thank you for a lovely event I'm inspired already by so many pretties.

Great quilt! Very ambitious to take on hexies and hand quilting as a new quilter, it turned out wonderful.

wonderful hex quilt - and so original. I loved seeing the photo with snow - the fence is the perfect way to hang it.
I'm glad you shared it with us!

Pěkné, do šestiúhelníků jsem se ještě nepustila, ale v této velikosti by to nemuselo tak bolet. Super barvy, pěkný vzor.
