Finished Patchwork Hexagon Quilt

I’ve finished. I’ve finally finished my hexagon patchwork quilt. It has been a long project. I started cutting out and forming these hexagons 17 years ago. Soon after, a house move meant that all the pieces were hidden in a bag and joined my other work-in-progress projects.

Then last year, I finally dug them out again and the sewing began. I wanted to make the quilt totally by hand. It made the perfect project for picking up at odd moments or evenings in front of the fire. Plus it kept my lap warm, which is an advantage in an old house like ours.hexagon patchwork quilt on swinging bench


The sun shone today. Thank you! This quilt has been my winter project and now it is finished, it feels like I’m ready to let go of Winter and move on to Spring. Plus AJ found a sleepy ladybird woken by the warmer day. What more can I say.

Yes, I think I’m ready to dig out the pots and seeds and get started with my planting. Spring and my kitchen garden are calling. The children spent all day outside and there was even the first bike ride of the year.

Not that it is the end of my patchworking. I’m really happy with the quilt. It is my first ever quilt and I have definitely caught the bug, which is lucky as I still have several hundreds of hexagons waiting to be sewn into something else. I hope it doesn’t take me another 17 years. Hmm. Maybe next winter’s project.
