I decided that I wanted to enter two different categories this year in the Blogger’s Quilt Festival. You can see my first entry here, my second entry is into the Applique Category. I don’t do much hand work, so my project is machine appliqued.
I made this small wall hanging for the Modern She Made Swap on Flickr. The theme this time is Hexies which are right up my alley. I have over 1500 of them made and waiting for another 300 before I start piecing my quilt.
For this quilt I used hexies ranging in size from 1″ all the way up to 4″ (if measuring along one side). They are appliqued onto a gray Essex Linen Backing and matchstick quilted. Considering how small the quilt is I was shocked at how many bobbins I went through!
I love a good rainbow so I went scrappy rainbow on it and I also wanted it to have a nice flow, hence the spiral design.
I can say, with absolute certainty, that this will be one of the hardest quilts I ever let go of when I mail it to its new owner later this week!

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the rest of the festival!
