Blogger's Quilt Festival

It's "Blogger's Quilt Festival" time again. Lots of quilts to see and enjoy! Visit Amy's Creative Side and be inspired. Thank you, Amy, for offering us so much inspiration in just one place.

This is our entry for the Group/Bee Quilt category.
It is a quilt I stitched with my Romanian friends.
We learned a lot - about hand stitching, friendship, patience, determination, passion and  love for quilting.

We named it "Together in a Friendship World".
The top is hand pieced  - using English paper piecing technique.

- just to see the size -91'' x 91'' -
The beginning of piecing.

It took us 3 months to stitch the top.


The flower sphere is appliqued onto the scrappy hexagon background.

-the back with paper templates-
I did the quilting, on my industrial sewing machine.



Some stats:
- hand pieced
- machine quilted
- 91'' x 91''
- fabric: Kona cotton
- quilted with Aurifil thread
- category: group/bee quilt.
