Quilting the Hexagons

I decided to go with pink thread because I like to see the quilting when it's done by hand. My stitches aren't as small as I would like - it's a bit of a struggle going through three layers of fabric with all the open/flat seams. However, a couple more weeks and it should be finished.

  16. Sorry only half my comment showed up...

    Your quilt is beautiful. I love the way each flower looks like a whole flower bed, not just a single flower. Great job brining something traditional into the two thousands. One of these days I am making one of these and this will be my roll model for sure. Great job. Can't wait to see it finished!
