Well, I think I officially have Notting Hill out of my system. I have a bundle of the last colorway that I'll tuck away for a while. After my first and second messenger bags, my jumbo star quilt and now this one, I think I'm done.
This is a lot of pink-- much more than I'm used to. I'm really glad I decided to throw in the random white hexagons to calm it down a bit. This is a large twin at about 70" x 93". I might put it on one of my girl's beds. Although, we just moved them into the same room. With this on one bed, I would feel the need to make a second coordinating quilt for the other sister because they both love this one. I'm not sure I have another pink quilt in me for a while.
I used the larger hexagon die for the Go cutter, which I borrowed from sweet Amy over at Diary of a Quilter. Since I only have the Go Baby, I can't get this large die for my cutter. I'm quite tempted to buy the Hex N More ruler for the next hexagon quilt I make (because I'm sure there will be more). I've heard good things about that ruler.
I chose to slice off the points of the hexagons along the sides. I've bound them on a previous quilt and decided that although it adds a fun aspect to the design, binding all those points was highly overrated.
The back is pieced from some of the leftovers and a large piece of the poppy print which is one of my favorites.
I really don't think I'll ever get tired of hexagons. I especially loved this larger size. This quilt came together quite easily and relatively quickly.
I quilted this with my standard all-over loopy pattern.
