Drum roll please…

I finally completed my hexagon patchwork quilt top!

Started in August 2010. 1541 hexagons (and 36 half hexagons). Estimate about 180 hours of sewing. Eek.

The next question is: to border or not to border???

hexagons completed july 2015

    Something to be very proud of (though in a tastefully modest way of course. 😉 Well don!

  2. Wow! That’s amazing!! 🙂

  3. Fab-U-Lous ?! Re border, that depends on what size you need the quilt to be for what you want to use it for. I added plain white to mine to bring it up to size and to have a strong fabric edge to the hand sewing. That said, I love the hexagons going right to the edge. Lovely.

      Thank you! I can see the benefits of border or no border, but hexagons to the edge might make it a bit more tricky to finish & bind. I’ll leave it a while and think about it a bit more 🙂

  6. Gorgeous. I think a border would just bring it all together.

  7. To Border, definitely… Very special…

  8. Great achievement. It’s beautiful!
