I had hoped to finish something new to put in the Blogger's Quilt Festival but it just didn't happen. Then I was left with deciding which of the two completely finished quilt projects to share. I finally settled on my Hexie Terrain project. These hexies were my go to hand sewing project during swimming lessons this summer.
I my quilting echoed the shape of the hexies, which was a long process with all of the angles. I traced one of my hexie templates to add some "invisible" hexies on the white background.
The quilting makes it look three dimensional to me. I appliqued the hexies on to the white background using a straight stitch around the outer edge and then around some of the interior hexies.
I used some Terrain yardage for the backing and binding. I love the way the dots look! I love this quilt so much that it's hanging in my sewing room where I can see it every time I'm using my iron.
