My Blogger's Qult Festival Post 2012

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.  
More Terrain hexies!
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.

 Details:
Quilt Measures: 17" x 20"
Special Techniques used: applique, hand sewn hexies
Quilted by: Me!
Best Catagory: Favorite Wall Hanging, Favorite Mini, Favorite Home Machine Quilted

I'm looking forward to having some time to check out all the other entries in the Blogger's Quilt Festival.
