So , here we go. This is INTUITION. It is my second quilt and my first handmade and hand quilted. It started out as almost a goof. Something to do with my hands while I watch tv. At first I thought how difficult could it be to sew six little hexagons together?.. Afterall, I've never taken a quilting class. Then all kinds of issues arose. Should the hexagons be alike within a flower? Intuiton said yes. How to sew it? Intuition said fuse to freezer paper the sew with tiny stitches. Then how to join them? Intuition said white on black print. After that the quilt took on a voice of its own and it got more difficult to hear. It took two years to decide how to quilt it and to work up the courage. The black and white is quilted with white thread and the 'flowers' are each quilted with a matching color.

That is purely perfect, and it's in my sorta colours I LOVE brights at the moment as I am working with them too at the moment, you have done a beautiful job and how you fussy cut the patterns out makes it look extra special, like the harlequin affect - fantastic job :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:
