Hexagon Galaxy, Card trick and baby quilt all finished!

Standard

 

Card tricks pattern, my son Sam and my daughter in law Émilie asked for this top so I had no choice in finishing it! 🙂 My first full size quilt that I machine quilted, I leaned a lot and had lots of fun.

My Hexagon Galaxy wall hanging is finally done. All hand stitched EPP hexagons and hand and machine quilted. This is my own design.

Also a friend at work asked me to pretty up this baby panel, I had fun particing machine quilting by following the forms, a first for me. 😉

I am a die hard hand quilter but I have learned that machine quilting has it’s place in my life. I like the effect I get with machine quilting the stars on the Hexagon quilt, I could not get this same effect hand quilting. I love hand quilting but now find that I really enjoy machine quilting too, I believe that with learning how to use my machine in this way is just going to make me a better quilter. Each style in its place. This has been the most productive holiday so far and I still have all of this week to finish more WIP (or maybe start something new) 🙂
