Photos of Completed Quilt.

I can hardly contain my excitement! It's finished, it's finished ! Started in August last year my Boys' I Spy Quilt made of 284 individually pieced and bound hexagons is completed today after hundreds of hours work over the last 6 months. It is single bed size. As always I can't get the photos just as I want so I have shown you the quilt in several different poses. ( I must study how Gwen Marston had her quilts displayed in her Collaborative Quilting book ...they looked fabulous.) I now have to complete a little hex shaped label I am hand stitching, ( solid black) so it won't distract. In my next post I will tell the quilt's story.

Oh well done Ali, it is beautiful - you should be extremely proud of your wonderful accomplishment.

BYW - I tried posting on the site and it worked OK so maybe there was a tech glitch when you were trying.

That's fantastic! I am doing 'normal' hexagons at the moment, but your idea is great.

It is lovely to see an interesting New Zealand quilting blog (and written by someone who also grow up in Marton!)
