Description

'Orange Stones' were improvised suddenly. I hadn't planned to enter the 'Blogger's Quilt Festival' in autumn 2011, because I didn't have new quilt. Just a while ago I had received wonderful orange fabrics and I got an idea to try to make a quilt in one week.
This was my first time to make hexagons and I really enjoyed this easy and quick pattern. Those hexagons comes together so great with big triangles and different fabrics. Again I used white and made the quilting by hand.

This quilt is hanging on our staircase and it makes me happy every day!

Terryt1955 Thank you Terry! I designed this quilt and you can see in my blog how I made it. Look 3 posts from this http://nerospostandpatch.wordpress.com/2011/10/29/hexagon-quilt-with-present-fabrics-2/. I cut 6" stripes and from that 60o triangles (sides are about 6,5"). I used my ruler.
