Garden Party Quilt

Garden Party
70" x 70" cotton
Hand and machine pieced.  Machine quilted.

Garden Party won Second Place in the
Original Bed Quilts Category at the La Conner 2015 Quilt & Fiber Arts Festival.  

I hand pieced the center grandmother's flower garden hexagons using English Paper Piecing.  The next border in the medallion quilt is made using Karen Stone's Lady Liberty paper piecing method.  I then added some more hexagons, Double Pinwheel blocks, and lots of Flying Geese.  I used a variety of prints and batik fabric.  

I loved quilting this - I used Aurifil and Superior Threads So Fine.

I photographed this at the Seattle Art Museum.
