Quilts of a Feather has received her quilt, I can share the whole thing with you. Secret sewing is hard! I kept sharing little sneak peeks, but now here is the whole quilt.
Renee said red is one of her favourite colours, but it doesn't often make its way into her quilts, so I used four different red fabrics and a solid white. Along with lots of sewing at home, the epp went with me to Nova Scotia for my brother's wedding, so I could stitch on the plane.
Once the top was finished it was time for some fmq! I have to admit that I was a little nervous about doing the fmq on this one. Have you seen Renee's fmq skills?? If you haven't, then I highly recommend you check out her blog. It was Renee's fmq that first drew me into her blog, with this post from almost exactly two years ago. My fmq skills were in their infancy and Renee simply blew me away.
Victoria's block finished at 10 1/2", with 1" hexagons, but I wanted mine to be bigger so I'd have more room for quilting. I doubled the size, making 2" hexagons, which gave me room for flowers, lots and lots of pebbles and a few little swirls.
I also had fun choosing different designs to go in each of the four red fabrics.
