Inspired By Quilt Entry
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. 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. You can see the pebbles quilted inside this “ghost” hexagons a bit better. The back of the piece is quilted with grey/smoke color thread, so the quilting looks very subtle on the back. Of course, both of my inspiration quilts are hand stitched. I figured technique wasn’t a deal breaker. 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.
