Pink Hexagon Quilt

It's done!  The quilt top has been a WIP for quite some time

Pink Hexagon Quilt, 79-1/2" x 87-1/2"
and it was finished on Sunday night.

I also made some more Sylvia's Bridal Sampler blocks over the last few days trying to catch up to Diann - she's going great guns with her blocks.

Corn and Beans
Cut Glass Dish
Kansas Troubles
Ocean Waves
I'm missing a photo of Milky Way.  Some of the pieces in these blocks are so tiny and my piecing isn't very accurate - the photos show up too many errors but it's good to "keep it real".  The next lot of blocks to be made will be mainly yellow - there seems to be a lot of turquoise and pink happening and a fair bit of lime green.

49 Blocks so far
I hope to make another 14 or so blocks and then call it quits - I'm not keen on foundation piecing and so many blocks in the quilt are made this way.

Elizabeth and Matt have set their wedding date - 9 February 2013.  Something wonderful to look forward to.

Great progress on your Sylvia blocks. Amazing all those tiny pieces.

Looking forward to seeing more SBS blocks, I see what you mean about needing some more yellow though I can understand why you would reach for the pinks, turquoise and greens. They are looking fantastic!
The pink hexagon quilt is just divine, so so pretty! I see it in your etsy shop too - some beautiful quilts in there.
Exciting news about a wedding date!
