Description

I need a baby quilt for some old friends and had this idea in my head. Hexagons made from equilateral triangles and lots of negative space. I'm hoping to write this up as a pattern, but first I need to quilt it - I know what I would like to do - hope I can actually achieve it....

After a bit of a practice on a different quilt I went for the spiral quilting I had planned. It's a bit baggy in places where the fabric has stretched but from the front it looks fine. There are a few more puckers on the back but I picked a busy print to hide it! Mia helped model the finished item!

I plan to write this up as a pattern in the near future - volunteers to pattern test would be gratefully recieved!
