Bangles...

Seems like it's been a busy week, but I did manage to get some sewing in. I've become rather obsessed with my "Bangles" quilt. It's from Sarah Fielke's book, Hand Quilted with Love. The quilt popped out at me the first time I flipped through the book. But all those "Y" seams ~ I'll admit I was a little intimidated! Then I saw this one and this one. It's what sharing our quilting projects is all about. Seeing someone else successfully tackle those "Y"s, gave me the courage to give it a go!


All my prints are laid out and sewn into hexagons. I'm to the point of slooowly sewing the print hexagons together with the white ones.


I used this inspiration fabric from a line called "Blythe", added a few more pieces from the line, and finally threw in some stash fabrics. The colors are very rich!


Hopefully I'll have more to show next week, along with some tips that have helped make this project move along smoothly.

This Saturday I'll be at Winston's Sewing Center from 10-12 with a book signing and trunk show. Hope to see some of you there!

  2. I made a mini version of this quilt. I found it tricky but, like you, I became a bit obsessed with the pattern after I got the book. Your progress looks great.

  3. Have I told you lately that your book is awesome - A.W.E.S.O.M.E.? Every single quilt and project is perfect in any style of fabric - Christmas or something else. Anything else! I told a friend about it and after looking at the pictures of the projects in the book on Amazon and Martingale's website, she couldn't stand it! She HAD TO HAVE the book! She loves it - almost as much as I do.

    As for your Bangles quilt - it's beautiful. But then I love everything that comes out of your studio. :)
