Finish It Up Friday ~ Half Hexies

I had several rows of this quilt put together before I left for AZ. Mr. Wonderful did all of the Christmas cooking so I was able to sneak down to the sewing room to do another row or two here and there.

After Christmas, I got the top quilted and bound.

I just love the texture this panto gives!

I used a layer cake of Nest by Moda and added a few bits from my stash.

The backing is a light gray.

This is the panto I used. I’ve used a version of this before. During the recent sale at Urban Elementz , I ordered this in a larger size. Apparently, I really love it. As I ended up accidentally ordering two.

I’ve decide that from now on when I gift a quilt, I’m just going to roll it up and tie it rather than wrap it. So much easier.

And finally, here is a shot of the whole thing.

I love how it turned out, even though these really aren’t my colors. No worries, I have a friend who has persevered through many challenges that I will gift it too. She is an inspiration to me. I’m hoping this will help her to feel loved as she recovers from a serious health challenge.

Have a great day!
