This week’s finish is one I'm very proud of - my own version of Elizabeth Hartman's Honey (from Modern Patchwork). It was the last of five projects that I pledged to complete from my quilting library as part of Chezzetcook Modern Quilts' Library Project last year.
I echo quilted each hexagon, leaving the low volume wedges untouched.
Size: 34 by 31 inchesKonas Used: Azure, Breakers, Caribbean, Lagoon, Peacock, Pool, Silver
Quilting: Free motion zigzags using Aurifil (Colour - 2600) and echo quilting in shades of teal (Gutterman - 601, 621, 670, 687)
Binding: Kona Silver, Hand stitched with Aurifil
Backing: Paris Flea Market by Moda
Favourite Part(s): Finishing the last of my Library Projects and coming up with a unique way to quilt it!Read about the process: here, here, & here!
