Six months in the making and the hexagon charm quilt top is finished!
I have hand pieced 1,033 pieces of 1 1/2" hexagons to achieve the required size.
The top measures at 72" x 73"
There are no straight borders for this quilt as my daughter loves the hexagon shaped edging and wanted me to leave it as such. I'll be adding more hexagons for the backing edges once the quilting is done.
It'll be backed with Topiary from the Parisville line by Tula Pink - it's one of my daughter's favourite prints.
I'll be hand quilting following an outline flower design using pearl cotton thread.
On another note, I have resumed knitting, it was my on-the-go project prior to piecing the hexagons. I've picked up where I left off on the Mediterranean Lace Shawl - a pattern from 'A Gathering Of Lace' knitting book by Maureen Egan Emlet. I have a few more rows before I get to the edging then on to blocking!
