Hexagon Quilt Finish - Q2 FAL

One of my big goals for the year was to focus on completing some of the MANY half done projects I have stuffed in every nook and cranny in my sewing room.  I did really well the first quarter of the year but have really fallen short since.



So I am super happy to share this finish.  This quilt top has been done for at least 7 years...but as usual, I never found the time to quilt it.  It was one of the items I included on my Second Quarter Finish-A-Long list with Katy at The Littlest Thistle.  So far it is the only item I have finished this quarter but it is one more off the list...right?




The backing was purchased eons ago and is a bold orange and brown stripe.  I kept the hexagon shape on the edge of the quilt which always makes sewing on the binding a bit more challenging.





For the quilting, I kept it simple and quilted in a big flower shape in each hexagon.  I haven't decided if I am going to keep this one or put it up for sale in my Etsy shop.  I am getting a bit over-run with quilts.  They seem to be stacked up everywhere right now!


Finishing this quilt brings the number of old quilt tops to be quilted down to only 6 (I started the year with 12.).  Hopefully by the end of the year, I will have worked through them all!

(Thanks Katy at The Littlest Thistle for keeping me focused on these older projects!)

Wow, congratulations on cutting your list in half already this year - that is awesome! I love keeping the edges of quilts zigzaggy, but it does make the binding more time consuming.

Jasmine said...

Congrats on the finish! I always avoid those uneven edges, but your looks great. I also really like those big flowers.

Leanne Parsons said...

I love the hexagons but even more, seeing what looks like a "man" quilt...thanks for sharing under our Hexagon theme at TUesday Archives. (Great job...and patience on that binding too!!) I appreciate seeing how you quilted it...I'm always looking at how people finish things. :)
