Floating Hexagons Quilt

No shock to my regular blog readers, I have another two-parter monthly goal, but at least I haven’t blogged about either of these projects before! My first priority to get my Floating Hexagons Pattern Test Quilt bound. I was so honored to test this lap-size pattern for Sarah@Sarah Goer Quilts. This pattern is perfect for contrasting solids. I chose two of my favorite Kona solids, Cerise and Berry, for this quilt.

The quilting was done by Melissa at Sew Shabby Quilting, and I just love how the diagonal plaid quilting motif looks. This is the second quilt that Melissa has quilted for me, and she does such a great job for a competitive price and fast turn-around.

I want to make this quilt again featuring some fussy-cut prints (maybe cats, Christmas prints, etc). Check out Sarah’s Petting Zoo version to see how great this pattern can look with colorful prints from a favorite fabric collection.

Christmas Baubles Quilt

Part two of my October One Monthly Goal is to make a Christmas mini quilt that I have wanted to make for awhile now. It is the Christmas Baubles Quilt by Jen Daly featured on Moda Bake Shop. I’m using the same Kate Spain Jingles prints along with the white on white snowflake background that Jen used. I haven’t decided yet if I am going to make a pieced border or not.

    Hi Mary! Oh, your Christmas Baubles quilt is going to be so darn cute. The fabrics are fun and I especially like the trunk of the tree. Your Hexagon quilt is gorgeous – wowee. I am becoming more and more a fan of solids. I think this is just stunning, and the quilting just enhances it even more. Nice job to Melissa as well! ~smile~ Roseanne

    Good luck, especially with the Christmas quilt. Every year I think about a Christmas quilt, but then leave myself too short of time
