So my first one block wonder quilt is finished! Yay!!! I can't believe how good it turned out. Sometimes I amaze myself :) The quilt is really not my colors but I can appreciate the beauty. I decided to go for just a black border with a little strip of the original fabric that I had left over. The quilt ended up being 52" x 64", so a pretty decent throw size.
When it came to top stitching it, again this was my first one block wonder. I looked for some ideas online, to see what other people had done. I ended up going custom. I did a circle array flower in each hexagon, which fit nicely. Then I did each border with it's own design.
I decided to use turquoise thread on the whole quilt, even the black borders. It turned out nice but next time I would use black thread to blend in on the black fabric. Using colored thread on black makes your mistakes very evident.
Even though it was just a throw size it took me quite a few days to top stitch. I do got a little 20 month old at home though. She really doesn't like to share my attention, which may be the culprit for it taking so long. It's a wonder I get anything done:)
So here it is... It is actually a very easy quilt to make, if you don't mind sewing tonnes of triangles.
