Blogger's Quilt Festival - Spring 2015 #2

Wow, this is the first time that I have had two quilts ready to enter into the Spring 2015 Blogger's Quilt Festival.  My second entry is my Happy Go Lucky hexagon quilt.

This quilt began as a car project during a long car ride in Christmas 2013 and was just finished.  It really did help me not be such a horrible back seat driver.  If there is ever another long car ride in my future, I will definitely have a hexy project.  Because it was pieced in a car, the hexy placement is totally random.

Since it was all hand pieced, I decided that the quilting should done by hand as well.  Each hexy is echo quilted and the white hexy's have an extra echo.

I am glad that I am entering this into the Spring Blogger's Quilt Festival since it reminds me of a spring picnic.

Please check out the other entries as there are loads of quilty inspiration,  There are also some great prizes for sharing (Hello Babylock, how I would love to take thee home!).

  1. Even though the hexies were placed randomly, I find the whole very pleasing to the eyes. And the hand quilting certainly adds to its charms.

  2. Bravo! I'm impressed you did this by hand. Knitting helps my backseat driving, too.
