Making Progress

Well, with the holidays, I've only managed 30 minutes here, 15 minutes there, and the occasionally hour over the past couple of weeks to continue quilting my modern hexagon quilt.  I just have two corners to go to finish quilting before I'm ready to make the binding and finish this one!
Sometimes I get these crazy ides, like pebbling an entire quilt in metalic thread several years ago.  For this quilt, I decided to echo 1/4" lines on the outside of the hexagons.  Yup, crazy! It's taking a while, but it's looking good.

It goes well with the quilting in the hexagons and the alternating width echoing in the center.

I just have two more corners left to complete and one hexagon.  I just received the thread for the last hexagon in the mail on Monday, so I can finally get that one completed.

I think it looks awesome from the back!  I love the rainbow effect that various thread colors make in the hexagons.

Now, maybe things will get back to a level of normal and I can get some quilts completed!


  1. Are you doing this for the hexagon class at quilters way?

  2. It only seems crazy until it's done... then you'll just love it:-) Fabulous!!!

  3. Your quilting is looking amazing. Is this free hand or walking foot?
    Love it!
