On the Home stretch......

 Flower Garden Hexie quilt....

This project has been taking far to long, I'm pretty sure I started it in 2018 with my friend Jenny and she has completed her quilt just recently so hopefully mine will be finished in the next couple of months.....

Still heaps of hexies to be made yet.....

It is all done by hand and is very big....

approximately 2.60 x 2.40 cm.....

After I get this section done it has a wide fabric border.....

Then the big decision...... 

to hand or machine quilt.....

I'm also working on the baby quilt.....

Next block done....


Expect to see more progress photos of  these 2 projects .......

Short and sweet post this time....
