The Ruby Hexagon Quilt

The quilt is finished and delivered!  Welcome baby Lucy!

 99 Hexes.  33 fabrics - 3 of each in the quilt top.  80 diamonds.  20 half diamonds.  8 triangles and 4 half triangles.  The hexagon fabric is from  the Ruby line by Bonnie and Camille for Moda.  The white is a white on white leaf pattern.
 The hexes were pieced into rows by machine, the diamonds and triangles were pieced in by hand.  The border was done by machine.
 The back is a solid piece of flannel also from the Ruby line.  Soft as butter!
 I did some free motion quilting of flowers and leaves.

 A picture of the label which you can read about here.

Finish it up Friday.
