A Hexagon Quilt Finish: Hexistential


Hand-pieced...


Hand-quilted...



Hand... everything!


"Hexistential".



A happy and hopeful hexagon quilt made by me, Michele Pacey. Started on May 19th, 2012, and fully and completely completed (full frontal here) on March 15th, 2013 ... Yeah baby!

Happy World Wide Quilting Day to you, eh?

The journey of this quilt:  herehereherehereherehere, and the completed quilt top here and here.

And for the die-hard hexagonner, my "Hexcellent Headband PDF Tutorial" is available in the shop!

  1. Wow. That is just about one of the prettiest quilts I've ever seen. One of my favorite antique methods is the Yo-Yo quilt, and this has that sort of merry color-frolic, but better, because the flatness of the hexagons let me see the bits of pattern better. Well done, girl.

  3. Wow! I know it's been said, but wow! After learning how labor intensive it is to just make the hexagons, never mind stitch them all together, I am more than impressed with this quilt. And hand quilted! Another wow!

  11. So, so beautiful. You are my total hero, and probably the only person I know online who's actually finished a hex quilt. Hand-quilting it is a truly championship move. And that hexie edging is just perfect and gorgeous!

  25. Bask in how good you must be feeling right now!!! It has been a treat watching the progress over the past year ... and now finally - the last stitch has been made!

    I am completely impressed with your hand stitching - perfect! If my hand stitching through the quilt layers looks even half as good as yours - I would display the quilt from the back!!!!!

    Congratulations! Well done you.

  26. I've gotta HAND it to you! This quilt is hexalicious! (;

  27. Oh and most likely you will hand-wash too, right? This is truly a great heirloom! I am curious to see what direction you will take with your next quilt when you come up for air.

  30. I'm speechless, ditto to all the other comments. I'm not sure which impresses me more, the beauty of it or that you finished it in less than a year. I still have quilt blocks I made 20 years ago that have yet to make their way into a finished quilt!

  38. The quilt is beautiful. I love the play of colours. I am working on a hexagon quilt too and there are days when I dont seem to get time to work on it. I think I should follow your example and do a little bit every day! How did you do that hexagon border on the back? It is such a neat thing. You will be my inspiration now!
