Hexy Text.....Take-A-Long Quilt



It is amazing how long it takes to finish a quilt

you're not working on...




In December 2012 I added the border hexagons...






Love the texture of the darker fabrics

on the border...






I decided I wanted straight edge borders

 on this lap quilt...




While on our recent road trip, I began adding

half diamond shapes to the edges of the hexagons...


This is tiny and tedious paper piecing,

but what else I am going to do at 55 mph...






On the left side, you can see that the quilt top

 now has a straight edge border....






I was able to complete 3 sides of the quilt top

 while we were on the road...












We are planning to do more traveling this summer...






So, there is fresh hope of finishing this quilt top soon!






Gunnr is still spending lots of time in the hay fields...







All of the hay has been cut, raked and baled.

Now to load it up on trailers and store it in the barns.

Hi there!
I absolutely LOVE this quilt! You did such an amazing job on it. It is traditional and modern put together! Do you happen to have any of the names of the fabrics you used? Or scraps you're willing to sell?! I would love to try a mini quilt like this! (I'm new to quilting and hexagons are next on my list!) Thanks! So beautiful!
