And mystery quilt revealed: Our very own Pixel quilt.
Lady Gaga quilt
We needed the quilt ready for our Quiilt Exhibition in 21 of June, and so the Lady Gaga pixel quilt came to life in just 2 weeks (maybe less!)!
Four people successfully contributed in the making of this quilt, and it was really challenging for all of us!

It was my first attempt into making a pixel quilt and in order to draft a pattern I used the V&A pattern maker that works really great especially if you are using a graphic or a comic picture.
The quilt size is 60 x 60 inches and is a collective work by our quilt group.
I really enjoyed this one, and mostly how quickly it came to life.

On Thursday I will be posting more about our amazing quilt exhibition here in Thessaloniki, don't miss it, a lot of great quilts were presented!!
Till then, have a nice day!

Now it is your turn! Hop over at Freshly Pieced and take a peek on how everyone else is doing.

And yet another quilt finished! How I love finishing quilts before Fridays. The binding really makes this quilt stand out, I really love it!

The last week I finished one of the tops that we were assigned to make at our local quilt group for charity purposes. We made 4 different tops using the same pattern from Moda Bake Shop: The Jelly Turnover Quilt. This is my version of the quilt!

The pattern was really easy and the one different thing we did on the piecing/cutting part was that instead of cutting the squares, for the half square triangles, at 5'' and then correct the finished HST, we cut our squares at 4'' 7/8 inches so that the final HST di not need any correction. Really much more easier that way, but you have to try piecing with precision. Hopefully this week the quilt will also be binded, and I could show you the finished one for next week...

Hexie-madness
Finally I found some time to post my progress on the hexie madness that has come upon us for the month of May. Our local quilting bee assigned us to make at least one block of hexagons (1 inch) and I got so addicted that I made 7! We gathered so far almost 21 blocks and before the end of June a whole quilt will be finished.

We are preparing a quilt exhibition for the 20-21st of June, so there a lot of things to be finished until then. I will try posting more info later on this week.

I am now preparing a new english paper piecing project using the Rose Star Template. It will be my summer-beach project.

Linking in to Jessica Alexandrakis and the Monday Morning Star Count for a count of what everyone is doing on their english paper piecing projects.
