It is a hexagon quilt, using Bali Pops, inspired by the hexagon quilt alongs from the last year or so. There are many things I really like about quilting for other people. One of them is seeing all the different fabrics, and the colour combinations. Another is the challenge of trying new things, which can be rather anxiety provoking as well. We had decided on an all over pantograph for the center of her quilt, and feathers in the border.
With the navy border being a tone on tone, the feathers showed up wonderfully.
The challenge was fitting the pantograph into the irregular edges of the hexagon center. But with the aid of the vinyl cover that goes over the pantographs on my table of the long arm, and some washable crayola markers, I was able to draw the edges of the quilt right over the pantograph, so I knew where to stitch, and where not to. Doing this, I was also able to alter the pantograph a little so that it would flow from one area to another, without stitching into the border.
Here's the corner turn with the feathers.
Norma Sharp. Thanks, Gail, for trusting me with your quilt.
