Fun Hexagonal Quilt





I delighted in paper piecing this quilt last year. I handstitched it for my then baby son as a floor mat. Happily it has progressed from the floor to the sofa as Tom has become a toddler. He now sits on it to have a bottle or quiet time. It is made with a combination of retro prints, fun kiddy prints and scrap fabric. I couldn't believe how quickly it hand quilted. I had fun designing the star design used to quilt the border.

Thanks for visiting, Jan
