english paper piecing hexagon quilt - quilting completed

I completed quilting my english paper piecing hexagon quilt the other day and I'm THRILLED with the results.  I'm so glad I decided to do it myself.  I'm even loving the really crinkly feel which usually doesn't appeal to me.  Here are a few gratuitous shots of my quilt blowing in the breeze.  The lawn has been mowed and the sun is out so time to head outside for some show and tell!

This is my favourite fabric in the quilt.

Closely followed by these.


 Here is the backing fabric.  It's small scale leaves which I think is in keeping with the spots and stripes in green and blue theme without being overt.  

Now need to start auditioning binding fabric.

I also completed quilting the quilt I've made for my nephew Ezra.  This was the first kit quilt I've made and I'm quite pleased with the results.  

Especially the backing which was taken from my stash and compliments the quilt really well.

Thanks girls. I love paper piecing, I do it in front of the television and it gives me a break from in front of the sewing machine. I've actually been working on that quilt for 2 and a half years!

You have such a good eye for colour! The pieces look stunning together. I have bags of old tiny floral fabrics that were passed on to me. They are crying out to be made into a Grandmother's Garden quilt - one day!
