Bright and beautiful floral fabric are cut in such a way that they form a kaleidoscope.   Same fabric and every hexi is different.  I also quilted a different circular pattern in every hexigon which made for interesting textures.   The geometric hexis were left simple so they would stand out and the orange thread was carried through to the striped border.   Fun way to use a lot of my patterns.

This fantastic quilt is a wedding present.  Originally the gray was supposed to just have background fill, however, I found the cutest quilting pattern of two llamas kissing with a heart over head and I just had to add it to the top and bottom of the gray fabric.   The borders have a Peruvian style which looks phenomenal on both the front and back of the quilt.  Mother of the Bride was thrilled, I can’t wait to find out what the bride and groom think of it!

Warm flannels with darling winter animals.  This quilt just begged for snowflakes and I let loose a storm.  I love how they look on the blue backing fabric.   Now to get a mug of hot chocolate and cuddle up in this quilt.

Ideal Stitches is at the Fair!  While I only entered one of my own quilts, four other customer quilts that I machine quilted are at the fair this year and three quilts took ribbons.  I had a fantastic time Friday looking at all the quilts, enjoying the ribbons, and eating through out the day.  (isn’t the eating what the state fair is all about?)

This monthly sue quilt is simply delightful.  Each background is a different thematic fabric and the quilting is unique to each block.  Truly a delight to let my creative juices flow!
