Hexagon Quilt--Finished!

Head over here for the Go! Baby Giveaway if you haven't signed up yet.

I finished this guy up this afternoon.  I just had to sew the binding down.  I was really excited to get that job done.  For some reason I didn't think about how painful the binding would be when I decided on the design.  There were a lot of corners to go around. The fabric is Color Splash from Art Gallery.  The hexagons are 6" finished, and the quilt is approximately 58" x 70". 


I am so excited with how the back came together.  I used the leftover little triangle scraps from cutting my hexagons. 






I've decided I'm done with hexagons for a while... that is after I teach my sister how to sew them this weekend.

  1. now THIS is BEAUTIFUL! :) I love both sides... and I'd have a hard time thinking of the back as the "back"... I think I'd call it another front. :) Great job. It's just stunning!

  2. Amazing!! Never one for the easy option, and it pays off! Again the back and front could be either side xxx

  7. Wow! You've done such a great job on this quilt. The fabrics play together so well. And the back ... such a beautiful grouping of triangles to form one more large hexagon. I'm guessing that was fun to design and took lots of patience to sew. Thanks for sharing! Congratulations on such a gorgeous finished quilt.

  9. I love it!! Great job and that back is just amazing! I love hexagons and like the edge but I bet it was a pain, at least they are big hexies and not 1" - lol.

  12. Oh my gosh - I adore this quilt, Kati! I might even enjoy the back more than the front, though both are stunning. Wow. I bet I say that for all of your quilts - I love how inventive you are when it comes to quilt backs :)

  13. insane...I can't believe how much work you pout into the backs! Both sides are gorgeous. You did a fantastic job. You must sew all day and all night! (which i know you don't b.c. you have kids!) i don't know how you do it!!

  14. I can't get over this quilt! I love hexagon quilts, so that was no surprise, but the back is amazing! You are so creative! I would have never thought to use the leftovers that way. Brilliant!

  17. Oh my gosh! Beautiful! AND... You are the queen of quilt backs!! I love them all. They could be quilts in themselves! Didn't you have a tutorial on the binding? I need to check that out! I turned my table runner inside out!! I see patterns or books in your future! :)

  24. Holy crap, Kati! This quilt is amazing and the back is absolutely stunning! Will you just come and sew at my house and then leave all your projects here?!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Whoa! How cool is that back! I totally would have tossed all those triangles - we don't get along well. Wish I could pop over and sit with you to watch some triangle sewing.

    Awesome job going with the crazy long zigzag binding. It looks fabulous.

  26. I think the back is my favorite! You always make such fun quilt backs!

  30. The back is fantastic - Am I allowed to like it even more than the front? Hexagons are a fiddle, but well worth the result.

    ReplyDelete
  31. That is stunning! The "back" is mesmerizing.

  32. Both front and back are beautiful!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I love the rows of hexagons on the front, but I really, really love the back!

    ReplyDelete
  34. This is gorgeous! I can't imagine how fussy it must have been to sew together. So many y seams and triangles. And the binding! You truly are an amazing quilter!!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Great. As always, I love the colours you've chosen for the quilt. And what a clever way of using the leftover triangles.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Both sides are great- not sure which I like best!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Amazing yet again! And I think that your quilt backs are the best ever. You amaze me.

  38. You have got to be kidding me - how on earth did I miss this Kati??? I love the front but I love the back even more and that binding must have been a right royal PITA.

  40. Beautiful! I would call this a reversible quilt since both the front and back are wonderful! The back of the quilt is just wonderful and very creative!

    ReplyDelete
