A big Ta Dah!


I was jumping up and down with excitement earlier in the week - you guessed it, after two and a bit years Hannah's hexagon quilt is finally all finished!!


25 rows with alternate rows of 12 and 13 hexagons, so about 300 + in total.  I haven't counted up exactly but there's at least 20 different coloured fabrics and I used the same white on white fabric for the backing.


The fabrics were collected from quilting shops all over the North island of New Zealand and I used at least 4 rolls of cotton to hand sew it all together. I tried really hard to keep the colours random but in the last few rows as the selection of colours was getting low, I did end up with a few close together.


Hannah is so thrilled with it and now she can't wait for it to go onto her bed this weekend!

See you soon xx
