Blogger's Quilt Festival

Today is the kickoff of the Blogger's Quilt Festival.  The quilt I would like to share is the quilt I made for my niece, Mia. 


It is a queen sized quilt featuring Amy Butler's Love collection.  The pattern is half hexagons using this tutorial.  It is the largest quilt I have made to date. 

I really enjoyed being able to make this quilt for my niece and having it be her new bed quilt.  Here it is in use:

I've never seen such large hexagons in a quilt. I love them. I find them much more interesting than the teeny ones.
