Blueberry Park Hexies [A Finish]

Well this finish has been a while in the making. Two years in fact. I started it on a whim and made a couple of blocks and then put it away. Over Christmas I got a sudden urge to work on it again, and I very quickly made enough blocks for a small lap quilt and put it together while away for work in January - hence the poor hotel lighting!



Then I had to decide - keep it small or keep going. I started with a fat quarter bundle and still had some left so I just got on with cutting, cutting, cutting. I cut as many more blocks as I could from the fabric I had left, but it was soon apparent that there were a couple of fabrics I loved most which I had used quite heavily in the section of quilt I had already made. In the interest of balance (and because they were my favourite prints) I put out a call for help on Instagram - and some fabulous people helped me out - thank you @jenthepiecemaker and @the_orriginal!


The final quilt top is 10 x 10 blocks (the blocks are 6" finished). I backed it in some orange Kona which I picked up on sale a few years ago, and bound it in Kona cerise. The quilting is just straight lines a quarter inch either side of the main seam lines. We took some photos of it on our daily allowed exercise with some beautiful blossom.


I actually have no idea what I'm going to use this quilt for, but it is finished and was a Finish for Q1 of the Finish Along this year!
