I love quilting and always have, but I have reached new heights of "have to quilt" lately. I find the whirr of the sewing machine so soothing and just love the last stage when you pull a quilt from the dryer and it is all crinkly and warm. I also love all of the stages, so I don't shove tops in drawers like I maybe have in the past.
I have discovered hexagons...well the large ones. I tried English piecing a few years ago and decided it wasn't for me. But I love sewing the larger ones. I used a half hexie ruler with this doll quilt and will quilt a lap sized one tomorrow.
There have been so many beautiful pictures of the granny square quilt block as well as quilt alongs. I promised myself that I would make a quilt using them. I am a little late to the party but am just smitten with making this block. The color possibilities are endless.
I have been quilting so much lately. I think part of the reason is that is still chilly outside and also that I find sewing on my sewing machine so soothing. We had to send our beautiful Brodie to the Rainbow Bridge on February1st and quilting has helped keep my mind occupied. Not that there has not been a river of tears shed.
Mainly I have been using Bonnie and Camille fabrics....I have purchased every single line that they have designed. But, I had this top that I used MoMo charm packs for and love the way it turned out.
A little wonderland......
And of course "Marmalade"by Bonnie and Camille....
