My take and progress on the Hexagon Quilt

Hi ladies, this is my first time posting here so a super BIG hi to everyone.  I have really enjoyed looking at every ones progress and it is lovely to see all the quilts now coming together.

I am new to quilting so I was not sure how I would go with the original version and never having hand stitched such a large project before I was a little shy of it so I decided to go for a larger Hexagon first time around. 


As you can see I have also squared off my quilt as I think that I will add a wide white boarder and then hand stitch a flower design all the way around.



I also still have two flowers to stitch on every white Hexagon .... I am slowly but surely getting there.

I am thinking that I will give the bigger quilt a go when this one is nearing completion.

Enjoy your day and happy Stitching,
Sharon

Love the way you've squared it off Sharon. And your idea for the border sounds fab-u-lous. Look forward to seeing more as you progress.
