How Do You Quilt a Hexie Quilt?
I get lots of question about quilting a hexagon quilt. Today I had this quilt draped over me in my recliner - Micky, our dachshund, insists on having a quilt over him when he's in my lap - doesn't matter how hot it is. I love the way this is quilted. Click on the picture to see closer -
This was professionally quilted by Elayne Vognild, who quilted several of my book quilts years ago.
I recently ordered the ice cream maker attachment for my Kitchenaid mixer. Yesterday I fired it up and made my first batch - Banana Pudding Ice Cream. (Recipe: 2 cups heavy cream, 1 can sweetened condensed milk, 2 mashed ripe bananas, then near the end of the churning add 1 cup of Vanilla Wafer cookies, crushed). You can see my cookies in a baggie, waiting to be added.
It was delicious! And provided a nice dessert to our Father's Day dinner of lasagna.
I'm almost done patterning the next section of Bliss - stay tuned!
