Pink Hexagon Quilt


A couple of weeks ago I posted some design ideas for this quilt.  To view the post click here.  Well I ended up not using any of the options I was considering.

Most people liked the curved cross hatching in the centre of the pink, but when I actually quilted it I didn’t like it.  The shape was quite unusual and it just didn’t look right.  So I unpicked it.

However, I did like the actual shape itself, so using the curved cross hatching rulers I came up with a curved diamond spiral shape which I think worked really well.
