A Scrumptious Finish!

I finally stopped the dithering over the binding for my friend’s quilt, and just went with trusty black and white stripe – oh how I love stripey binding!

Finished size 57″ x 60″ (including the big crease down the centre!!)

This is my first half hexie quilt, using this tool, a Bonnie & Camille Scrumptious Layer cake and some Kona Snow.

And while I’ve made some adjustments to subsequent half hexie quilts (yet to finish), I really love how this one has turned out.

I’ve backed this one with red fleece, to make it super snuggly!  Our evenings can still be chilly here, so hopefully my friend will still get to use it straight away!

I quilted in the ditches of the hexies, as well as a diamond/zigzag pattern through the centres.

The handover is this Friday night, at the 70’s themed party!  I’m supposed to dress up, but I’m chickening out!

Happy sewing!
