Yes! YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I’m skipping and dancing and clapping. Can you guess what for????????????????????????????????

Yes, after 35 long years I have finished my hexagon quilt top. Just need the wadding and backing attached and its all done. How long do you think that is going to take? Are we taking bets on this?

Lucky has claimed her place on the quilt as she always does.

I have quite a few hexagons left over and I can’t let these go to waste so I have an idea. Will tell you all about that at a later date when I have my quilt all done and dusted so to speak.

Anyway must go and admire my lovely hexie quilt now. You know cuddle it and stroke it and run my eyes over it.

You better have something good, lined up for when we all meet up again. It will not be the same at our meetings without your quilt covering your knees.
Well done, you must be feeling really chuffed.x

My word Judith you have staying power. Some could have gone through at least five husbands :-)
Very, very well done.
No the five husband thing isn't me by the way. But I once started a quilt very similar.

It got dumped, just like husbands I suppose :-)
Not mine I add

Well done Judith, I wouldn't let the dog sleep on it though, not after all that hard work!!!

I just love this! Am I seeing that the center is more random and the border has the hexagons arranged in flowers?
