Design Wall Monday

DSC_8604 Well I finally did it.  2 years and 1 month ago I started my hexagon diamonds quilt.  Today I put the last hand stitches into it.  All 2,473 hexagons are sewn together and I just need to add a border to it and then sandwich and quilt it.  I think I have a plan for quilting it, it’s not going to be anything fancy since this is a queen sized quilt! I’m trying to decide how thick the border needs to be, I’m thinking only about 3 inches just to have a stopping spot.  I’m cutting all the sides even, but I still think it needs that little bit on all sides.  I have a few hexies that were extras (counted wrong on a few diamonds) that I was thinking of appliqueing on the borders, I’ll have to see if they really need it when I get them added on.

2014-07-28 16.29.36Since I had the quilt on our bed, even though it is going to be used on the bed in the trailer, I decided my new quilt model needed a pic on it.  She’s now 4 months old and such a joy in our lives! Such a happy baby!! Hope to start posting more often now that I’m getting a little more free time – not much, but I am getting to work on the sewing machine a little more lately!

Linking to Patchwork Times.
