Modern Hexies, a finished quilt

Ta-done! On Feb. 29th I started this project, and on Wednesday this week I finished it. My handy spreadsheet tells me that is 65 days from start to finish.

And some pictures of the quilting. I loved how this puffed up a lot but then I pressed the heck out of it and I loved that too. Would love to see what this looks like after a wash.

  1. Oh my gosh! I love this! The color gradation is perfect and I love the binding. I have wanted to try this on a smaller scale and make a tote bag or even zipper pouch with a panel of quilted hexies. This is inspiring!
