A mini quilt I made for a Design Bee challenge. I tried stepping out of my norm and used the #diffractionblock designed by @quiltingjetgirl then added the 6 minute circle technique. I also challenged myself to try a new to me quilting design.
I was out of town for the #scmqgswap last weekend, and yesterday I received my lovely mini quilt from Phoebe @pixiecupindustries Thank you so much, Phoebe! A friend at our guild meeting yesterday commented that the quilt is so “me” and she’s absolutely correct! I love it! 😍
I can finally reveal the mini quilt that I made for the #scmqgswap My mini went to @nmclau who loves purple, green and navy (I think she likes Bear Paw blocks too😉) The Quarter Log Cabin Bear Paw Block was inspired by @fabricmutt
I hand pieced these hexies this past Summer, basted it with some wool batting and it’s been sitting waiting for some hand quilting. I haven’t hand quilted in a while, but I’m kinda looking forward to the slowness. I’ll machine quilt in the seams to get started and so that it won’t take forever to finish. @suzyquilts just posted a great video on hand quilting and it was the spark that got me motivated!
Today is my stop on the #modernquiltsblockbyblock book tour! A beautiful new book by @emily_dennis_ filled with fresh, easy and traditional yet modern quilts - I had fun making the block from the cover quilt called “ First Place”. Be sure to check out all the pretty projects in the hashtag!
