Every Spring and Fall Amy’s Creative Side Blog hosts a Blogger’s Quilt festival. (Follow the link above to see all the lovely quilts there.) My first introduction to the festival was last spring and I am pleased as punch to participate again. I have already entered Big Blue seen evidenced in my last blog post into the category of Modern Quilts. Today I would like to introduce to those who are new to my blog my Flower Pots Quilt As You Go Wrapped Hexagon Quilt.
I gleaned the techniques for making this quilt from a much smaller project in the book Quilt-opedia by Sarah Jane Taylor
Using the techniques described in her book and employing Peppered Cotton and Little Folks Voile I designed and made the quilt you see. My favorite part of this quilt is that it is ALL MACHINE PIECED AND QUILTED. I used a special flower motif decorative stitch to machine quilt the pieces together. It measures 38 x 44 inches or 164 inches in circumference. I call it Flower Pots because it to me it represents the perfect balance of soil and flower/neutral and color.
