White Hexagons!

So, I posted about green hexagons the other day.

The green hexagon project is still in progress, but, of course, there's another hexagon project in the works.

White and cream hexagons on a muslin background.

I really like the assortment of textures and "colors" within this very narrow color scheme. (Wait. Can you even call variations on white a color scheme? Anyway ...)

I'm glad I decided to put the white-and-cream piano-key border around the edges. 
It's just what it needed.

I ironed Heat-n-Bond to the backs of the hexagons, to hold them into place until I could quilt them on into place.

Quilting around every hexagon through all the layers: time-consuming, but worth it.

I'm loving the progress.

The quilting is looking pretty neat from the back, too. The back is mostly muslin, with stripes of white and cream ...

The "expanse" of plain muslin on the front will have basic, curly free-motion quilting on it, and the piano-key border will probably be quilted in straight lines.

So far, so good.

  1. I love the heat & bond idea. Why didn't I think of that? I saw the post with the finished quilt... amazing how the FMQ can completely change the look of the quilt. This is so beautiful!
