Quilting Gallery Contest Entry

Hi everyone!   Just a short post to ask you nicely if you would consider voting for my quilt 'My Flower Garden' which I've entered in the Quilting Gallery weekly contest this weekend.

Do you remember this quit  which I've blogged about here?

My quilt came about after seeing this quilt in the Australian Patchwork & Quilting vol. 18 no. 9 issue back in 2010.

I've used Marti Michell's 3/4" hexagon acrylic template and followed her dot-to-dot piecing technique.  There are more than 4,000 hexagons in this quilt, all hand-pieced and the centerpiece were hand-appliqued to the borders.

I've hand quilted in-the-ditch for the centerpiece and used variegated thread for the ribbon pattern on the borders.

I've used cotton batting and a wide width fabric for the backing. 

The whole process took me 13 months to complete and I'm very proud of it!  It being my first big quilt and everything was done by hand, no sewing machine used here!   It measures  85" x 95".

Here is the whole quilt :

Go on over and have a look at all of the lovely quilts HERE...  but feel free to vote for My Flower Garden if you like it!  

Thanks!   I appreciate your time!  =)

Have a great weekend!
