Hexagon Text Quilt......Border Fabric


I dug through the fabric cupboard and pulled out a few 

possible suspects for border fabrics for the 

Hexy Text quilt top:



I think a few rows of darker hexagons will work for a 

border treatment on this hexagon quilt top...






Fabrics on the left side:

Scraffito by P and B Textiles






Fabrics on the right:

Whatever I could find in the fabric cupboard






The Scraffito fabrics have so much texture...






My mish mash of whatever I could find in the cupboard

also works as a border treatment...




 I decided to try out a few hexagons cut from the

Scraffito fabric line:


How FUN are these?






I guess you know where I will be tonight...




Western Oregon has been stormy the last week or two:


We spent a day at the coast shopping this week...






The ocean was rough and gorgeous!




The next few images from the coast will make

excellent thermofax screens:

















 Along with the stormy weather here...


We had a dusting of snow yesterday.

The rose in front of the house is still hanging in there.


Yesterday I spent the day ice dyeing fabrics and shibori dyeing too.

When the fabrics have batched and washed I will show you 

the results.

such an exciting quilt. I like the darker fabrics with no text for the border. Looking forward to seeing more of this .

What a great idea to use type fabrics for hexies - I think your border is going to be ideal.

You made me miss the coast of Oregon with those pictures. Last I was up there was back in 1976...78 maybe. Awwww Oregon.
Love the looks of the border on your hexy quilt...so much ambition there.
