Bloggers Quilt Festival - May 2011

Amy's Creative Side

So I've had the button on my blog to remind me of this, but with the craziness going on around here I haven't had a chance to post about it yet.  For my regular readers (love you!), you have all recently seen this quilt...so sorry about that.  But hey, I like this one and wanted to to share it.  You'll forgive me. ;)


The quilt I want to share was cleverly named by one of my readers as "Down the Rabbit Hole".  There were so many other great names as well, but ultimately I'm such a sucker for Alice and whimsy that I couldn't deny the perfection of that name!


Hexagon Quilt



This quilt is designed by me and based on a small block that I made for my super sweet and funny friend Lynne.  I love the movement of this quilt and the options that I have yet to explore.  I'm determined to make this with six different fabrics as I did the original block and I think that I'm going to try to use my Mendocino Swimming sisters for it!  But life is a little crazy right now, so it may be a little bit until I can do that.

I've also been working hard on writing up the pattern because I think that this is the first one that I am going to offer for sale. Which of course puts added pressure onto writing it up because I obviously don't want their to be any mistakes.  But I wrote that up the last couple of weeks and just need to add the center hexagon template to the PDF and I should be able to offer it.  Woohoo!  See...you know I'm crazy when in addition to everything else I'm also writing up patterns. ;)

But thanks for stopping by and I hope that you enjoy this quilt!  You can find my original post about it HERE.
