I finished the hexagon quilt.
I think I should call it "When In Doubt Add More Red"!
I made the hexagons out of an 8 pack of fat quarters. I didn't know what to do with them - there were too many for a table runner and not enough for a lap quilt - so I added red fabric! It made a small lap quilt that I still wasn't too thrilled with - so I quilted an all over pattern in red thread! Red is my favorite colour and I figure can only make things better!!
I did a loop and three-leaf all over design with red Aurifil thread on my home sewing machine. I used cotton batting and a flannel backing. The fabric is Glace by Moda. The quilt is a 52" x 50½" lap quilt. I am pleased with the final results - red did make it better (maybe that should be the name!?).
I don't think I would make the pattern again, I find that there are too many bulky seams.
These flowers aren't quite red, but they brighten my living room. I brought this hibiscus plant in for the winter, it did wonderfully outside for the summer.
