I thought I was finished making hexagons, but after I appliqued the quilt to the plain border, I decided it needed to be a bit larger to fit our bed comfortably.  I thought about adding a pieced border, but didn't think it would add to the overall design.
My final decision was to make a second plain border, using fabric similar to the final background hexagons used in the quilt top, and then add two alternating hexagon motifs , appliqued to the final border, to finish the quilt.
So now I am back making 42 flower motifs, and 42 lozenge motifs.  I had been complaining to DH that I didn't have any hand stitching to do while watching the Olympics, so now that problem has been solved.


  1. so are those called "lozenge" or is that your name for them? i have been calling mine "diamonds" LOL

  2. Wow. It's so very nice. Can you give some instructions on how to do it? I am sure many will appreciate it. Thank you for sharing.

    1. The pattern for my quilt was another found in Australian Homespun magazine, March 2013. You can buy an e-copy at for a few dollars. I'll post a few pictures of the border, when I begin to stitch it - I only have 10 of the 84 motifs finished.....

  3. So nice! Your first sentence was shocking me, but now I'm calming down again. Finished to make hexies? We are never coming to that point, unless we are blind, I think. Have a nice weekend!

  4. Very cute little hexies. Can't wait to see them all put together in your quilt. It will be awesome.

  5. There's always another hexagon design to make! =) Ask a woman who is working on at least three right now. LOL For more inspiration, you can check out Hexagon Alley. A lot of us post sporadically about what hexagon project we are working on.


Thank you. Your comments are important to me.
