New Handmade Quilt in my Etsy Shop

Nearly forgot to show you my new listing for a handmade quilt. Besides patterns I do offer a few select quilts as I just have too many of them.

Lucky for me I am not attached to most quilts...once they are done, it's onto the next project, the next idea, the next challenge and that is how they accumulate.

This quilt is both hand- and machine stitched. The center consists of 99, 2in hexagons, sewn together using the English Paper Piecing method. It is 41.5in x 45.25in and has a lovely feel to it. I did freemotion quilt the hexagons down with some point to point curved designs for added durability as it is hand stitched. And of course, I did a bit of a leaf design in the sashing and some lines in the border.
How do you put a value on this? With difficulty, I must say...funny story though...I did stitch this rather cheerful and sunny quilt watching the entire series of 'Breaking Bad'. Can't remember now how long that ran for but it felt like forever. Anyway, that is how long that center took to construct.
Would not mind doing another one, quite liked the therapeutic, calming repetition of sewing those hexagons together. Maybe in winter. 



  1. I've English paper pieced a few hexagons. I liked the process and keep thinking that I'll get back to the process. . . .Your project is beautiful.

  2. You should name it the Breaking Bad quilt! Your hexies are lovely and this color palette is so on-trend for 2021. Did you know that yellow and gray are Pantone's Colors of the Year?
