Spring 2012 - Bloggers Quilt Festival

Today is the first day of the bloggers Quilt Festival. Amy's Creative Side is hosting this Festival to give the opportunity to those who can't attend Quilt Market, to share their quilts.Link up and share your quilt,too.


MY ENTRY FOR THE BLOGGER'S SPRING 2012 QUILT FESTIVAL - SWEET SUMMER COTTAGE QUILT


Last Summer I began sewing hexies without knowing exactly what I was going to do. At first I though about doing the Vignette in Stitches Hexie quilt but then I found, from a friend blogger tip, a wonderful pattern al Quiltmania Magazine. It was called Aunt Sarah Quilt. I loved it. Of course I have to make some alterations (as usual), so Aunt Sarah turned out to be my Sweet Summer Cottage quilt.
The quilt top has about 540 hand sewn 1" hexagons. The border was sewn by machine.And the applique,too.
