Hexagon Quilt: English Paper Piecing
These days I spend more time running around with the family and less time quilting so it's kinda big news when I finish a quilt top.
I was not trying to make a huge quilt with this hexagon project, more of a small wall hanging.
Now that I see it all together, I sort of wish I had made it bigger. It's rather cool.
I have been dragging it around with me, working on in her and there so it's a bit wrinkled in the photo, but still...the top is DONE!
That doesn't mean the quilt is done, of course. My favorite part is still to come...the quilting part.
Next I need to put some borders on it and baste it in prep for quilting.
Not sure if it's small enough for me to quilt it on the go, but I do have a portable quilting hoop and a huge trunk. Hm....let's see how that goes.
Now on to the borders. Decisions, decisions.
I'll be using more Oakshott fabrics (same as the hex shapes) to give it a consistent look.
