Blogger’s Quilt Festival Small Quilt Entry – Flower Pots Quilt As You Go Wrapped Hexagon Quilt

AmysCreativeSide.com

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

Amazon.com: St. Martins Books-Quilt-Opedia 9781250044792: Books.

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.

Be sure to check out all the amazing quilts at Amy’s site.  Thanks for visiting.

    1. Oh thanks! The no reply blogger status is because I’m wordpress and you are blogger. They don’t like each other and I am too lazy to make a ghost blogger blog. Isn’t it fun to see all these amazing quilts?

    1. Wow, wow, wow! Your photo mini quilt is amazeballs! Having seen a couple other wrapped hexagon quilts I’m always struck by how different they can look with varied fabric choices-look forward to seeing your finish. 🙂
