Bloggers Quilt Festival Spring 2014

lug7

It’s that time again Blogger’s Quilt Festival and I thought I would share our Lug Nuts quilt.   If you are new to my blog I am a longarm quilter that has started designing quilt patterns with my friend Lori Suss, we call our design company Highway 10 Designs.   I live near Flin Flon, Manitoba (hence all the snow in the photos!) and Lori lives in Dauphin, Manitoba and the highway that connects use is Highway 10 so that name just seems to fit us perfect.

Our Lug Nuts pattern creates oversized Hexagon using 9 fabrics.  We used Little Black Dress 2 fabrics and chose 3 ivory, 3 grey and 3 black fabrics for our quilt but it can be made with any 9 fabric, 3 color combinations.

I quilted it with a pantograph called Fascination, used So Fine thread and Quilter’s Dream Blend batting.  We had fun with the backing as we had a few blocks left over.

You can find this pattern in our Esty shop here.

  12. I love the design on the back ...just as pretty as the front. Im a big fan oversized hexagons and I must say that this is one of the most lovely quilts I've seen from the genre. Those fabrics are just perfect to showcase the hexies! Such a lovely quilt.

    Your business name is fantastic too!
