|This picture is sideways but it still gives you an idea of what is going on closer up.|
|The echoed hexagons take an hour to quilt each. . . One would think it would be faster. . . OK, I think it should go faster LOL|
|Close up of those echoed flowers. I decided on echoes instead of paisleys.|
|I decided that I wouldn't do echos in a portion of the quilt. . . design decision? Let's be honest - this is all about the time it is taking to quilt this quilt! haha|
|I do love the texture and the look. Do I like the time it takes? Ummm. . . let's wait and see how this baby turns out ;)|
|I really like the non echoed blocks - should have just went with that huh? Live and learn, live and learn - right now I'm doing a good amount of learnin' over here LOL|
|I decided to do the diamond column differently as well. I will do them every other one, so that next column of diamonds will have the middle diamond unquilted.|
On to the giveaway. Long post but it has been
|Moda Marbles Citrus Fat Quarter bundle. There are 10 cuts in the bundle. I promise, I have not cut even a tiny piece out of any of them! Sometimes I can show restraint. OK, not often when it comes to fabric :)|
Here are the rules:
Come on, you know me - there are no rules! This is open to international readers, I will ship anywhere!
You don't have to be a follower to have a chance, but if you want to follow along on my quilty journey, I sure would love to have you come along for the ride!
So just leave a comment. Any old comment will do! And if you are a no-reply blogger (if you use Google + and you have not done the abracadabra poof thing to fix the no-reply, you are a no reply blogger) please leave your email address so that I can get in touch with you.
I am going to to leave this giveaway open for a week (closing at midnight MST 5/4/2014). Let's be honest, I'm quilting up a storm over here and I am likely not going to leave my sewing chair for days! grin So I will announce the winner (chosen with Random.org's Sequence Generator) in next Monday's (5/5) post. Oh and you KNOW I will be posting a finish before Monday so make sure you check back before then!
Good luck! And again, thank you for participating in my little part of the blogosphere! :)
Linking up with Patchwork Times for Design Wall Monday, Stitch By Stitch for Anything Goes Monday, Free Motion by the River for Linky Tuesday, Quilt Story for Fabric Tuesday. I might be adding more. . . just depends on how this goes!
Update: Adding Let's Bee Social with Lorna over at Sew Fresh Quilts, WIP Wednesday over at Freshly Pieced Modern Quilts and NTT with Kelly over at My Quilt Infatuation. It is looking good, I might have the quilting done tomorrow! Stay tuned for the big reveal :)
Until next time, keep on quilting!
