Blogger's Quilt Festival 2015 - Part 2



As part of the Blogger's Quilt Festival 2015 all makers are allowed to submit two quilts. This is my second entry which i made as part of the Instagram Hand Pieced Mini Swap and probably my favourite make to date.


All the fabrics were fussy cut and i picked out some of my favourite prints and colours for this project. I love to fussy cut when using English Paper Piecing.




I started and stopped this project so many times as i had no clear plan of what to create. I cut up a few hexagons and started to make one triangle as a starting point. Once i had finished this i realised i could continue making these triangles and join them into one large hexagon. The whole hand pieced top was then machine appliqued onto a white background and after much deliberation i decided it looked better as a hexagon than it did on a square background and went for it.

I'm now trying to pluck up the courage to make another, just for me.........
