I tried my hand at quilting pebbles. I had attempted this before but wasn't happy with the results. On this quilt I quilted the pebbles in the white background fabric. I was having fun with it and not rushing and I think the pebbles turned out pretty good. I have to keep reminding myself not to hurry with the quilting. I'm always happier with the end product when I take my time.
I really liked the way the colored hexagons seemed to float above the background pebbles or bubbles sort of like lily pads on a pond. In an effort to keep that look I just stitched in the ditch around each triangle piece.
The binding was a little fussy but also worth the effort. I used straight cut binding strips like always but did inside and outside miters. The inside miters required a little bit of origami-like folding before stitching them down but I love the look.
