[Featured Site] KD-Quilts & An Awesome Hexagon Quilt (In progress)

Pin It
Have you noticed a trend here lately in the world of SoChick!?  Yep, there is more of a focus on sewing and fabric... most recently, Quilting.  I'm going to blame it on the super awesome "Block of the Month" lesson that I signed up for, HERE.  But also, it's my way of sharing my love of sewing in general!  What do you think?  Leave a comment below to tell me! 

Today I have Kristen of KD-Quilts to tell you about herself and a project that I think is just too cool!


* * *

Hello! My name is Kristen Danis and I blog over at I am a twenty something SAHM and have been 
sewing for years, but seriously started quilting 3 1/2 years ago. I got into quilting after I found my 
obsession for fabrics. Since I also have an obsession with blankets and pillows, quilting proved to be the 
perfect hobby for me! 

Last year I was blessed with the most amazing little boy! I have also turned my hobby into my business to allow 
me to stay at home with the little man, and I wouldn't trade any of it for anything in the world! I specialize 
in custom and memory T-Shirt quilts as well as little quilty accessories and original PDF quilt patterns for 
sale in my shop (

When I'm not sitting at my machine, you can find me playing, catching up on cheesy TV (love me some Real 
Housewives!) and knitting or snuggling under a quilt reading a good book.

Melissa asked me to share my super long term project with you, my hexagon quilt. 

When the little one was itty bitty, he wouldn't sleep in his crib until after his late night bottle. So he would sleep in my arms for hours and I was stuck on the couch. I needed something to do since I'm horrible at sitting and doing nothing. I 
figured it would be a perfect time to have a long term hand sewing project, and there is just something about 
those little hexagons of fabric!

I decided I wanted this quilt to be truly scrappy, not repeating a single print. Also, when I make quilts I 
want it to be big enough to snuggle under, and this quilt is no exception! That means I'll need over 2,000 
prints. When this quilt is finished, it will all be 100% done by hand, including the piecing, quilting and 
binding. So far I've got 1 row of 4 all finished!

I keep an update of all my hexie progress on my blog,, as well as all my other quilting and 
sewing adventures. 

Thank you Melissa for having me on your blog today!
