Sexy Hexies

Isn't this a beauty, it's bright, it's fun, it's all hand pieced and then appliqued onto a purple border fabric. Often the quilt and fabrics speaks for themselves, there is little that needs to be done on my part. I said that tongue in cheek, I used continuous curves outlining every hexagon and quilted a flower in the centre of each of the central rosettes using Metro Khaki Sand thread. It did take a while, but once you get into a rhythm, it's surprising how the time passes especially if you have some soothing music in the background. I did simple beadboard in matching thread in the border.

It's such a shame that Marion wouldn't let me keep it, she wanted it back, can't understand why, I could have given it a home!

Here is Marion hugging her quilt, she wouldn't let me keep it!
