Monday Finish

I finished up the binding at my guild meeting on Saturday.


It was a bit breezy yesterday when I took these photographs. I could not get the quilt to stay still!

Here is a detail shot of the front.


I used two packages of Honeycombs for this quilt but only used 73 for the front. The other seven went on the back.


And here is a closeup of the back. The quilting shows up really well on the back.


The quilt is titled Hexa-Chevragon and the idea came from this tutorial. I altered the pattern to use pre-cut hexagons and trimmed my blocks a bit differently. The finished size is about 41" by 56". The quilting is all free-motion done by me on my HQ Sweet 16. I used Signature cotton 40 wt. thread in an Ivory color which oddly is almost the exact same color as the Kona Ash solid grey.

The quilt looks great. I have a hexagon die to die cut fabric so I may try this.
