Blogger's Quilt Festival Spring 2015

 spring 2015 BQF Button

Can't believe it is that time of year again. Where does time go?

I am entering in the Mini Quilt category with my '99 Hexagon quilt' that I finished late last year. As it is both hand and machine pieced and quilted on my DSM, I thought that that category probably fits best.





 Work in progress











The quilting was done with my trusted Aurifil 50/2 thread in a yellow colour. I outlined each side of the hexagons with a bit of a curve and used the black hexagons to stitch a simple flower design. This was good fun as I did this row by row, going down stitching curves and on the way back included the flower on the black hexagons.
The inner border was quilted with a leaf design which suited the overall floral theme.

The finished quilt measures 41" x 45".

The Linky is open now, going through to the 21 May. From 22-29 May you can vote for your favourite categories and on May 30 the winners will be announced. Lots and lots of quilty goodness!
