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.

You are very patient to make this beautiful quilt!
Thanks. There is another quilt I’m dying to make though this rather time intensive technique has prevented me from going there. . . Yet 🙂
This technique looks so cool! I haven’t seen any quilts like this before, I love hexagons, and may have to try this someday. Beautiful!
Thanks Kate! It’s a fun pattern albeit time consuming. Would love to see what you come up with. 🙂
Fabulous quilt. Love how the wrapped hexies look.
Thanks Audrey. So many possibilities with this design,
I love this quilt!!!
P.S. Thank you for your lovely comment on my blog. I’m afraid I can’t reply by email as you’re a ‘no reply’ blogger but I wanted to say thank you!
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?
Love both front and back…a sure winner!!
Thanks mom-always can count on you. 🙂
Love it! I’m working on a wrapped hexagons quilt too. Mine has scrappy pieced centers and calm purple backs/bindings. Yours looks completely different and quite compelling.
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. 🙂
i love this – any easy voting choice!
Aw thanks! Love all your beautiful makings on your blog-you are a busy gal!
