[BQF] rainbow entry: it’s a hexi world

While the industry celebrated new and upcoming fabrics and sewing tools at the Quilt Market in Houston this past weekend, the Internet (well, Amy’s Creative Side) celebrates the Blogger’s Quilt Festival for all us folks who stayed home. Besides it being a neat way to show your own favourite project off it’s also a place to meet other bloggers and dive into some new-to-you blogs.

I decided to enter my Hexagon World Map Quilt into the ROYGBIV (rainbow) category. I made it during the summer from lots of scraps I had left over, so it has all colours of the rainbow starting with blue in Alaska to violet in East Asia.
The Hexagons were appliquéd with straight lines running from corner to corner. If you want to read more about this quilt, how and why I made it, check out my original post for it.

      I was wondering where to enter this quilt but decided against the modern category, because I sensed a more geometric, simplistic vibe from the entries already submitted.
      Thank you so much for your lovely words, Angie!

    I’m not into hexagon quilts, but I really like what you have done here. Attaching them to the background as you have gives a whole new dimension. I love the modern look of this quilt. I hope you do well. good luck

      Thank you so much Hilary. I hadn’t been interested in hexies before I learned about this technique, either. I visited your blog and wow, your quilting skills are out of this world! xx Vicky
