Meanwhile - I didn't want to miss my chance to enter the Bloggers' Quilt Festival. I am choosing to showcase this mini quilt - a birth announcement quilt made for my son, Gregory. He was born in October - hence the foliage theme.
Most of this quilt was done by hand via English paper piecing, needle turn applique, and embroidery. I love having pieces of one of his baby shirts in the hexagonal background - it's the little white print with tiny bikes on it. This small quilt took a lot of time and it only measures about 18 x 20.5". But I love it and I am proud of my original idea to create a fresh/modern looking keepsake for my son and finally find a way to use paper pieced hexagons without committing to a HUGE project.
Thanks for visiting!
