I'm entering my very first Blogger's Quilt Festival!!
I am entering the Bee-Inspired Quilt under the 'Small' category. I am hoping that those who see this quilt will be inspired to try things that scare them and to take a step forward into the unknown.
|Read about the inspiration for this quilt.|
This has been quite an exciting few months for me. I started this blog two months ago. My first time ever doing something like this, and I made my first entirely designed and quilted by me, quilt.
What a blast!! Such a lovely group of folks, and that Paula sure is Sassy ;)
I was scared of making triangles and had heard dreadful things about BIAS and stretching and matching points misery. And I did it anyway!! Cause life is for living and not for fearing.
Along the way I found my triangle Mojo, and I know it will never leave.
And so that you never suffer Terrible Triangle Trauma, I made you a tutorial on how to do triangles, step by step. Easy Peasy!! Cant wait to see what you make!
|This quilt is all about Bees and our shifting light and seasons, here in Alaska.|
Here is the Quilting on this piece. I Quilted diagonal lines parallel to every seam, across the whole quilt. Then I quilted a variety of triangle shapes inside of the Flowers and the Sun.
Do you like it? I think it was worth the extra effort and added stability to the quilt. I see that some people made triangle echoes throughout their quilting and that is definitely an idea I will be pursuing in another quilt.
|Check out those corners!! I mitered every single one of them. Woohoo!|
