Honeysweet Swirls

Life has been very busy as of recent - we've had renovations done to our house.  Over the last nine weeks we have stayed nearby with my parents-in-law who have been FANTASTIC!

I haven't done a lot of sewing, but enough to finish off some projects, including this...

I made it from a jelly roll of Fig Tree Quilts' 'Honeysweet' collection, with Kona cappuccino as the contrast.

The swirls were made with two jelly roll strips and then cut into 90 degree triangles using my Jaybird Quilts' Hex'n'more ruler.

I added a small amount of similar fabrics to get the half-hexagons - but am super pleased with the result.

I quilted it using segments, an idea I got from Angela Walters new book 'Shape By Shape', and the border's arches idea came from a lovely friend at my patchwork group.

The backing is from Fig Tree Quilts' earlier line 'Avalon'.  The binding is a red from the 'Honeysweet' range

Love this quilt!  And my mother-in-laws' garden where I shot these photos on a beautiful spring day last week!

Finished size: 65" x 64"

Many more finishes needed...  better get unpacking!

Linking up to Crazy Mom Quilts' 'Finish it up Friday'.  See you there!


  1. Beautiful quilt! Love the quilting and the red binding!

  2. Very nicely done - such a lovely range of fabrics.

  3. Oh it's beautiful! I love the swirls and your backing colour really makes them pop - just gorgeous all round!

  4. This quilt reminds me of the foil windmills you get on a stick at the show. Lovely colours and very nicely quilted
