So take some time to click the link and see what other's have been up to. It is a wonderful way to lose a few hours, or more.
I've had a think about what I wish to enter this time around, and have made my first choice. My Hex-a-Mini.
I made this mini on a whim. Fussy cutting appears often in my quilting, and I am known to like a hexie or two. I wanted to make a hexie quilt with the machine though. So I used my Go! Baby to cut the hexies and the triangles and the piecing went together like a charm. Not a 'Y' seam was encountered anywhere in the making of this mini.
I quilted the low volume areas in a tiny stipple, leaving the stars to stand out without any quilting on them at all. The white border was quilted in a slightly bigger stipple and a yellow thread to soften it a little.
The sashing, backing and binding were all in shades of blue as there was no darker blue in the mini rainbow of stars. It finished at 18.5"x 20.5" and it just makes me happy when I look at it.
I think this mini very much encapsulates so much of what my style is with quilting - if I have a style that is.
If you have stopped by my blog for the first time from the quilt festival thank you for doing so. If you would like to see other things I have made there are tabs on my header that will give you a quick review. I can also be found on Instagram. I am canadianabroad there too.
I hope you enjoy the Blogger's Quilt Festival as much as I do.
