honeycombs wall quilt


For a dear friend's birthday this month, I stitched up a small wall quilt, using prints by Umbrella Prints from my fabric shop and some scraps of chambray.


Inspired by Betsy's honeycombs, I stitched up my own by hand, using an English paper-piecing technique.


I then machine-appliquéd the honeycombs to my quilt top and did echo quilting around the edges.


I stuck with my now-favorite rounded corners, and used up the rest of the binding I had made for this quilt. I used a coordinating vintage blue print for the backing, and I added both a label and a hanging sleeve.


I loved having the chance to work with these prints (they're among my favorites) and I'm happy to report that the birthday girl loved her gift.
