Hexagon Stars Quilt

I have recently quilted a wonderful scrappy Hexagon Star Quilt for my customer Maree.  This absolutely stunning quilt was made by Maree's patchwork group for her as a present for a significant birthday.  The quilt is completely hand pieced and has an amazing array of fabrics in it which have come together beautifully.

I have quilted this quilt with continuous curves in all the diamonds, adding loops in the diamonds which form the setting hexagons.  The loops have created a secondary design with which I was really pleased.

Many of the diamonds forming the stars in this quilt were fussy cut.  I had a hard time deciding which stars were my favourites so have made a mosaic with a lovely selection.

Maree was absolutely delighted with her finished quilt.  I believe a further five members of Maree's patchwork group are making their own versions of this wonderful quilt - I can't wait to see them.
