I love hexagon quilts and wanted to make one that was actually a hexagon shape instead of a square! This quilt is 159" around and the quilting is 1/8" apart spiral "polygons" in the "Mood Ring" itself. Not very easy to do on a domestic machine that has a lot of bulk! Someday I'll own a mid or long-arm . . . LOL! No. 20, 21 and 22 of my "I Walked the Line" Walking Foot Challenge.
This piece was strip pieced first, 60 degree triangles cut and then the six triangles sewn together. The quilting is concentric "hexagons." No. 19 of 52 of my "I Walked the Line" Personal Challenge. (If you are "following" me on this challenge, more info posted on my 'blog').
So we are now at week 15 into the new year and of my 52-week "I Walked the Line" Walking-Foot Challenge! The quilting was definitely a challenge on this one, trying to figure out the correct measurements for this "Trellis Crosshatched" quilting pattern by Melissa Marginet in her book "Edge-to-Edge Walking Foot Quilting Designs", but I finally figured it out (after several "erasings" of my chalk pencil...LOL)! The fabrics I used were: "Thatched" New Colors by Robin Pickens for Moda Fabrics; Kona Solids Black; Painters Tarp/Canvas Natural.
