Time Warp quilt!

Pantone Colour of the Year Quilt Challenge!

Wow! What a challenge for a colour!  Not my normal I use. Firstly, I would love to thank our hosts Anne and Adrienne for this.  Please check their blogs Play-crafts & On the Windy Side and please vote for my entry at either of these links you clicking on the heart icon.  Whilst your there enjoy the eye candy and check out all of the wonderful quilts of the other entries as well. Thanks.

Time Warp with Bernard and Ben!

love this pot of colour

Well this colour lead me on a search for a range of fabrics to fit this theme and I had an idea to use the Creative Grids Hexagon Trim Tool to create a new looking hexagon block.  To my delight I found 12 Fat 1/4s of Prairie Gatherings by Pam Buda.  I then proceeded to make the top and managed to find the perfect border called Judie's Album Quilt by Judie Rothermel.  I had bought my Aurifil threads from Always Quilting.

Fabrics and threads!

Completed top
My quilt is 52" x 44" and I am really happy with this size to showcase this new block.

and some more pebbling with swirls

I have called this quilt time warp as I feel it is unusual to use reproduction fabrics like this and also to Quilt it in this manner.  I love hand quilting and have really enjoyed this challenge and this quilt.  I am not sure where this quilt will finally reside but at this stage Bernard and Ben some of my favourite  bears have claimed it as their own.  Please leave a comment and let me know what you think about my quilt.  Thanks again for you vote.




  1. The colour combination hexagon shapes and intricate hand quilting have all contributed to this beautiful quilt. It is a work of art that will inspire quilters to achieve
