Happy Hexagon Baby Quilt

The baby quilt is all finished.  I really enjoyed working with hexagons and I am going to have to make another hexi project again soon.  I love that I can take them with me anywhere and work with them on the go.

Basted and ready for quilting.  I always press the back and front with a hot iron and heavy starch.  It really helps the quilting process run smoothly and prevent tucks and pulls.



My sweet little Apollo hanging out with me while I sew.



Adding the binding...





Look out... lots of pictures in this post.


All done!

I love this backing combined with the Good Fortune collection.  The backing is "the abc's of fleas" by Alexander Henry and the colors match nicely.  This fabric is great for a little one because it can be interactive and a learning tool.  Letters to learn and lots of fun objects for a game of "I Spy". 






I hope you have enjoyed watching this quilt develop.

It is now listed in my Etsy shop and you can find the listing here:  Happy Hexagon Baby Quilt.



Have a great day!
