Molly Flanders is hosting a favourite quilt linky party so I thought I would join in the fun! I enjoy most of the quilts I work on but my absolute favourite is Summer Umbrellas.
I made this quilt for my beautiful sister to help her celebrate a special birthday. I chose this quilt because I love scrappy quilts, I love hexagons and I love love hand quilting. It took me a very long time to hand quilt because I quilted in the ditch on every row of the strippy hexagons. I quilted the white hexagons with a feather pattern and love heart in the middle using various colours of perle cotton 8 and I quilted the border with feathers also.
This close up pic allows you to see the quilting and the backing fabric I chose a soft lilac tana lawn fabric for the back. It was so soft and cuddly. A lady that I sew with often describes the art of quilting as the activity that allows you to intimately know every stitch, piece of fabric and sewing of your quilt. As this was very long quilting exercise for me I think that is why I love it so much….
As always, many thanks for stopping by and wherever you are in world have a fabulous weekend.
