Ok, I’ve been hard at work making my entry for the Inspired By Quilt Alliance Challenge. These are my inspiration quilts. My entry doesn’t quite have a name yet.

? The project is 16″ square and has a total of 8 hexagons featured. Don’t try to count them. You can really only see 4, machine appliqued using techniques from Hexagons Made Easy. The other 4 are quilted into the design. I’ll get you a close up. Inspired By Quilt Challenge | ReannaLily Designs You might be able to see the quilted hexagon over on the left. The whole project has machine quilting lines about 1/4″ apart. There’s loads of variegated Sulky thread on this tiny quilt.

The back of the piece is quilted with grey/smoke color thread, so the quilting looks very subtle on the back.

Inspired By Quilt Challenge | ReannaLily Designs And like my inspiration quilt, this quilt is made entirely of fabric scraps. It is so nice to dive into the scrap bin and get those pieces used up. This project should be up for auction later this year. I’ll be sure to post a link for you when I find out more.
