Back in July, when I signed up with Poppy Patch here in the UK for this mystery BOM - George and the Donkey, designed by Lynette Anderson Designs - I had no idea how much I was going to love stitching this quilt. Once the final block was completed, I just had to assemble the blocks with the 4 cornersones and add the hexagon border. This is such a clever design, I love the way the hills roll and curve around the cornerstones...
...another row of hexagons was stitched in place to make the final border for this pretty quilt - I've lost count of the number of different fabrics that I've used for this project, but all of them are from varoiuos collections also designed by Lynette Anderson. These muted colours all look fabulous together...
...and here's the finished quilt top - oh my goodness just look at all those hexagons. Honestly, I'm not sure that I would've started this if I'd known how many hexagons were needed for this project, but by stitching a few each month I actually fell in love with them. Now the quilt top is finished, I feel quite sad that it's over, although here comes the really tricky part - deciding how to quilt it!
