My Hexagon Quilt





I am still on holidays at the moment and have been trying to complete a few UFOs. I have made 3 xmas presents but won't be posting them - one is for my Secret Santa swap person - hope they like it (fingers crossed that they will) , another for my secret santa person in my quilting group, and the third is for a family member of mine. I have taken photos of them so will post them after chrissy.

I am very happy that I have finished this quilt! It is special to me as it contains fabric from many of my past projects and reminds me of them. There are also some fabrics that I bought for my stash and couldn't seem to fit them into anything - there was too little of them or they were not quite the right tone or shade.
I bought the pattern at Cottage On the Hill (http://www.cottageonthehill.com.au/) while I was at a weekend retreat there last year. I have been trying to post a picture of the pattern for you as well, but am having a technological glitch - well actually, I am the technological glitch - SORRY am only a beginner at this blogging after all.
The pattern is by Threads Of Time from Bowral in NSW, Australia. Let me know if you want their details - they don't seem to have a website.
Until next time , take care.

Welcome to blogland Patch. I hope you find it as much fun as I have. If you come and visit my blog, you'll see the free world wide counter. You can click on it, (right click I believe) to go to the website to get your own counter if you care to. It's great fun seeing where folks sign in from.

Love the quilt by the way.

Your Hexagon Quilt is lovely! A great pattern for using those bits and pieces that "doesn't quite fit" anything else :o) You hand pieced this?

Great hexagon quilt. I too have a quilt with bits and pieces from other projects and find it to be very enjoyable for that reason. I am very sentimental!
