Blogger's Quilt Festival - Denim Hexies

It's time for the Blogger's Quilt Festival again, with our host Amy of Amy's Creative Side. This year, I've chosen to enter my Denim Hexies quilt in the Home Machine Quilted category.

I had so much fun making this quilt. First there was the experiment...would it be possible to do EPP with denim? Obviously, it was, and I love the denim hexie flowers. Then came the quilting.

With all that white fabric around the flowers, it was the perfect canvas for lots of fun flow quilting. I chose the gold thread to coordinate with the flower centers and so the flow quilting would stand out from the background. It was fun to watch the background transform.

The flower centers all have shapes chosen from Angela Walters' book Shape by Shape Quilting.

The backing fabric is too busy for all the individual shapes of the flow quilting to show up, but I do like how the gold thread looks against the blue and white. I love how the flowers puff up too.
