A Solid Finish

I finally finished my solid hexagon project. Yes, it is just pillow sized (20" square), and it still seemed to take quite a while. Hats off to those of you who are persevering through much larger hexie projects.I'm glad I decided to hand quilt it. I love how the embroidery floss highlights each hexagon. I finished the pillow with a quilt style binding in Kona coal.

The inspiration for this pillow was a lovely letter press card I saw on etsy by krankpress. It's funny how a quilt inspired card can become a card inspired quilt.

Wow!! Alex... it looks fantastic! Well done! I'm thinking of attempting a 1" hexie quilt. I might be 70 and still doing it... that gives me roughly 40 years!! ;)

Alex, this is awesome! I am so relieved to see it is a pillow . . . a beautiful pillow! I guess I better read your posts a little more closely. I thought I wasn't going to be seeing this finish for a l-o-n-g time. Glad I was wrong!
