Hexagons - Blogger's Quilt Festival

I've left it a bit late to join in the Blogger's Quilt Festival and there are some amazing quilts to see over on Amy's Creative Side so do take a look. I'm feeling a bit daunted to add my own humble effort, but here goes.

This is my Hexagon Horror

It's not a large quilt measuring only 41" x 37" and it had a few highs and lows in the making which you can read about with the following links:

Hexagon Horror Finale

I think my favourite bit of the whole process was choosing the fabrics and making the donuts. It was so satisfying to see the pile of them growing with just a little sewing in front of the TV each evening. We'll gloss over sewing the donuts together!!**, but I did like doing the borders. Another gloss over the quilting!!**, but of course doing the binding was great ....... a finish!

  1. The name of your quilt made me smile! Not a horror at all, but a wonderful hexi quilt! Love your fussy-cuts.:)

  2. Sounds like this quilt did not take the easy path but it is finished now and looks wonderful. Great finish!

  3. Your quilt is beautiful...and you're not as late as i was joining the fun! I agree with you about borders 👎...They're fairly easy but I still hate doing them.

  4. Love the name. I have horror stories too. Some of which sit in the closet sneering at me. So glad you finished this. It's lovely.

  5. I just had to stop by and find out why this quilt earned the name Hexagon Horror. Good on you for trying to machine piece them together. It looks lovely now it is finished. PS - the link to the final Hexagon Horror blog post above doesn't work, but I tracked it down and read it anyway.

    1. Thank you for visiting. I did get in a bit of a pickle with all those links - couldn't quite believe that I'd written so many posts about my "Horror"! Hopefully rectified now.

  6. Thanks for the links to the ongoing saga of this quilt. What a story!!
