I was editing some older photos last week when I realized I have never written a post about my completed Aura hexagon quilt! What? How did that happen? I wrote lots of in progress posts, but somehow missed out on the big one. Here it is, Aura, complete and flying freely on the clothesline, enjoying a little sunshine.
Take a step closer for more detail. This quilt was created over a period of two and a half years.
Take a step closer and you can see the swirly quilting.
The hexagons in this quilt are 3/4" per side. I challenged myself to only use fabrics from my scrap basket.
Take a step closer and you can see the pretty thread colors. I changed thread often, trying to match the hexagon colors as I quilted.
I used this fun dotty fabric for the backing. I think it is a good complement to the hexagons and the playfulness of the design.
Quilt Size: 45" x 45"
Hexie Size: 3/4" per side
Fabric: From my scrap basket
