Blogger's Quilt Festival--Spring 2013

If you are new to my little corner of the blog universe, welcome.  I'm thrilled to share one of very favorite quilts with the Blogger's Quilt Festival--Warm

hexie quilt finished!


This quilt measures roughly 32 x 28 inches, and is made of 258 different 1" hexies of my favorite  stash fabrics.  It is hand basted, hand pieced, hand quilted, and hand bound with an extra 76 hexies, just to finish the uneven edge.  I used a unique method from Amy of badskirt



This quilt was a labor of so much fabric and stitchy love that I'm so so proud to have it hanging on my wall in my sewing room.

Hi Melinda! This is not the first time I'm amazed with your work! I love love this quilt! Is there really so many different fabrics? I'm trying to find next hand-sewing project but there is not even a hint of enough colours in my stash. Thank you so much for beautiful inspiration! x Teje
