Finished sewing hexagons

It's been a long while since I last published. As a matter of fact I was showing you just flowers and now I can show you all my hexagons together. This is going to be a cover for a duvet, so after quilting a little bit I will be adding green fabric on the sides, the same colour as the individual hexagons. Hope you like it. It's going to be for my youngest daughter and she just loves green.
No onto quilting! Next time I show it I hope it's finished.

"La Passion"

Hi everyone,

on my blog you can see pictures from Hexagonquilt "La Passion".
All used other fabrics. Are so fantastic quilts.


Liebe Grüße Grit from Germany

Almost a year has past ...

Wow, almost a year has passed since my last post on this blog.
So much has happened this last year - so my Vignette Hexagon quilt has not moved along as fast as I thought it would ....

I moved into a new home ... and here I even got my own "Studio" - no longer using the dining room table (well, I still do that too)

I also got married ....
From our wedding day ... 4. August 2012

... but here it is how far along I got on the Hexagon quilt ...
I finally got the top ready:

I got the back ready:
(here I experienced a bit of drama ... I had purchased too little of the back-fabric ... what to do ? - panic ... until I remembered: this is PATCHwork ... I can just add some extra pieces of different fabrics)  :-)

... and now I am handquilting all the "flowers" - "Leanne Style" ... it is taking forever, but it's looking amazing ...

... and the best thing is that I can quilt it, while sitting on the sofa - already covered by this amazing quilt "not yet finished" !

All you other post have been really inspiring ... so here is my small contribution ...

Best regards,
