Finished White Hexagons Quilt

So, I finished the white hexagon quilt last week ... I got it done literally minutes before leaving for a bridal shower where this quilt was a gift.

After quilting around each hexagon (I mentioned that part in this blog post), I free-motion quilted all over the remainder of the center portion of the quilt. Straight lines on the border - and I love how the criss-cross effect worked in the otherwise-plain corners.

That's a lot of quilting, but it went remarkably quickly. 

Here's a view of the back of the quilt (before the binding was on, so pardon the batting) ...

I quilted this one with my favorite free-motion quilting design ... the kids say it looks a little like puzzle pieces. I think it looks like doodling on paper. Either way, I like the look!

Somehow, the quilt-draped-over-a-chair photo doesn't always look right ... but you get the idea. It's a nice throw-quilt size ... something like 60"x70" - but I don't recall the exact measurement.

This was a fun quilt to work on. It went together pretty quickly, and I had fun. I'm told it suits the bride's style just right, so I hope she'll enjoy it. 

I'll be linking this post to some of my favorite Friday blog link parties ...

  1. This is really beautiful. I have been making some hexagons with no real purpose in mind. I really like how you've used yours. I might have to borrow this idea!

  2. I think it looks like puzzle pieces too! very nice quilt!

  3. This is so pretty! I love the totally neutral design. Very classy!
