The Whole Quilt & Nothing But The Quilt
This is my Blue & White Hexagon quilt hanging at the Melbourne Exhibition this weekend. Thanks to Wendy W for taking the photo for me.
This quilt is hand pieced using the traditional English Paper Piecing method (but without stitching the basting through the papers) . It only uses six blue fabrics plus the white and no two hexagon flowers are the same fabric combination. I started piecing it in early 2008 and finished this year in May 2009. I used to take the little hexies everywhere with me - even took them to Townsville on our long motorbike ride last year.
When I finally put this quilt together I had really bad withdrawal symptoms from hexies - lol! So now I am handpiecing diamonds and will put a pic up soon.

Happy Quilting for now ... Jane
