it feels so great to have another project done from my 3rd quarter finish-a-long list!!
i started this project during a retreat. i had it all cut out and started piecing. But like most quilters i have Project ADD and started another quilt before i finished this one. well at the beginning of the summer i finally finished the piecing and again it sat. finally last week i decided it was time to tackle the quilting.
i had just finished my Two at a Time quilt so my machine was primed for quilting and went for it. i tried to match the thread as best to the solids as possible. the quilting to simple, a straight line echo around the half hexagons and filled in the yellow. i used Dream Wool batting and with the echo quilting it really made the un-quilted areas pop.
you can really see the quilting from the back. which i love almost as much as the front. this was a great little project to finish up and it is just so nice to have another project done!
now maybe when i can find some time, i can create this mini again, but this time in cool or evening colors.

What a beautiful mini quilt! I love your quilting, too!ReplyDelete
What a lovely quilt! Great job. It is always nice to finish those things that have been set aside more than once. I know that feeling too well. :)ReplyDelete
Thanks, it is a great feeling to finish up those projects!Delete
Beautiful mini quilt; it reminds me that I must make something from solids only too.ReplyDelete
I have recently started making solid quilts and i'm really enjoying it!Delete
I love the movement in your mini. Great colors and I like how you chose to fill in the yellow only with quilting. A companion in cool colors would be lovely.ReplyDelete
Thanks, I can't wait to make the companion quilt!Delete
I love your fmqing. It hardly looks free.ReplyDelete
