The suns been shining down on us here in Whangarei, perfect for heading outside to snap some quilt photo's. This layer cake quilt works well next to our lemon tree. Draped over the number eight wire fence.
Kerryn started to make this quilt at our annual retreat. Made using one layer cake and some yardage, this pattern is called: "Hexagon Hip Hop", from Pam and Nicky Lintott's book "Layer Cake and Jelly Roll and Charm Pack Quilts".
The quilt measures 56" x 61" the batting is Matilda's Own Cotton /poly, thread by Gunold.
My quilting design is inspired by Jamie Wallen. I watched one of his video's on YouTube on his basic swirl and thought I could use that design.
Loving the texture this creates, there is movement this way and that to keep your eye roaming over the surface of the quilt.
Satisfying you back lovers out there!
Back in 2012 I used the same quilt pattern to make my Dad a quilt. My Dad loves his quilt, he has it on his bed at the rest home.
If you want to see more details of that quilt you can pop to this spot on my blog.
