Hexagon Text Quilt......Border Treatment


Every Quilt has a story...



This quilt started out its life in 


October 2012

We were in the park visiting our son 

when I began piecing this.






This Quilt kept me company while I was 

nursing a head cold

November 2012

The 8 days I was in bed, I completed 

the center of the Quilt.





December 2012







We live an hours' drive from town,

so I was able to stitch lots of hexagons while we were

out driving and holiday shopping.

Yes, I am fortunate I can sew while traveling 

in a vehicle.





2 Rows of darker border hexagons added so far...

I think I will add 2 more rows and call it done.





This Quilt is not finished, yet it has provided me 

with comfort while I was ill,  

kept me occupied while traveling hundreds

of miles, and inspired me and fed my soul.



Wishing you many quilted stories in the New Year!

Already so pretty, especially the subtle color shifts. Can't wait to see it quilted, sounds like this one is a very special quilt just for you.

Wow! This is great. I have a hexagon quilt as my 2013 resolutions, but I don't think I could do that. Congratulations.
