Hummingbirds & Hexagons Back
Backing Quilt Pattern
In my last post I wondered whether I should follow my gut and quilt this in the pattern of my hand drawn sketches of flowers (see right).  After much deliberation, and upon reading the support of my virtual friends & family, I am going to quilt this baby with my sketched flower design and parallel lines.  Whew hew!  Thank you all for your help with this one...I hope to quilt some of it this week and be able to post the results next week?  I should be wary of making such promises!

Wow, you're busy! I think it's great you've stuck with your idea for quilting the H&H quilt - can't wait to see some! I love the QAL top - it looks great but how about swapping #2 and 4 (from L to R) in the bottom row to even out the pink and blue? How many TBs left to piece now?! I'm watching ;o)

Love all your projects. Those hand drawn flowers are gorgeous. I wish I could FMQ. I like your layout for your crosses. I didn't do this one but one day I'd like to. I think I might put corner set triangles in each block to give some little diamonds as a secondary design. Love the way you did the bakc of your Hummingbirds & Hexagons quilt!

Wow - what pretty pieces you made for the wedding order!! and such sophisticated tumbling blocks, with plays on black. Must have a really neat understated stunning look in real life.

Your hand drawn flowers are going to look amazing when quilted! I'm so excited to see it when it's done and it's not my quilt!
