Finished! Hexagon Log Cabin Quilt!

I finished it!  I had a tiny bit to do for about the last month and I just procrastinated and didn't do it and then suddenly, it was finished!
I machine quilted it and then added some hand quilting to the hexagons to show them off.


I hand quilted in red around the second border only if there was a red fabric in the border.  I think these ones look the best.
The back is made up of the larger panel that came with the children at play fabric by Sarah Jane, some squares of the fabric and also some white fabric with writing from ikea.  The ikea fabric is quite thin which makes it harder to get flat.  I love the design though and I think ti offsets the girlishness of the children at play fabric well.
The squares are 3.5" finished so started off at 4".

The binding is bright turquoise with pink polka dots and little panda heads which is so cute. I found it at spotlight.  I cut it into 2.25" strip which gives a nice narrow binding which I like.
And here it is on my daughters bed with the bedside table I painted, the bed I painted and the patchwork E and patchwork pillow!  I wish my bedroom had been so sweet when I was little.

  22. Oh Marianne! This whole room is beautiful. What a lucky little girl to have a mom that cares sew much! I was just looking at the tutorial for this quilt at The Sewing Chick yesterday. I love your version! And how you added the patchwork to the borders. The hand embroidery.... Also a very fine touch!
