A finished HST quilt with borders

I realized I have not yet written about finishing my HST quilt. After two years of (machine)sewing and then handquilting, I reached the final stitch some time ago, and here are some pictures.

As I have written before, this quilt was made from a pattern published in Quilts Japan. Unfortunately, as I do not read Japanese, I can not tell you the name of the author of the pattern. 

 It was the first time I added borders to a quilt and I am so pleased with the result that I will definitely do this again. Quilting the border was a long labour of love though, and I'm not sure how often I'll be able to repeat this proces on other quilts.

I'm now working on my very first hand sewn hexagon quilt, another long term project. For some reason, those always seem to attract my attention.

2 opmerkingen:

  1. So, so pretty. The border is the perfect choice!

  2. This looks really wonderful! Well done. I also like the look of the HSTs with the sashing between them. You don't often see that and I like it lots. The vine border is pretty awesome too - I've never done a large scale applique project so I am in awe of your patience.
