A finish, for real?? ME???

I am so excited I FINALLY not only finished a project (well almost..I am learning how to hand quilt it but its pieced and part way quilted. LOOK!

I used Ahhhh #7 :Diamond Window as a basis for this design I called

(click to view) 

Using this pattern, I also filmed a video called:
English Paper Piecing: Hexagon Diamonds.

I introduced my Atlantis quilt in this video. The purpose of the video was to show how one can use diamonds for their hexagon quilt settings.
And what I am more excited about than anything is that the video is just the beginning of a series teaching the process a step at a time.

I know I am really quiet around here, but if you will follow Hillbilly Quilt Shop on facebook you will find I am better about updating. Since my full time job is on facebook I need to be there a lot. Plus I update from the hospital etc. Anyway, here is the video with hopefully more to come!!


  1. it was great! where did you get the embroidery from? by hand or machine?

  2. Love that block.. and the embroidered butterflies and fabric. My sort of fabric. I now know how to start putting all my AHHHH's together thanks. Hope J is on the mend and that the emergency room visit wasn't too bad. In my thoughts.
