Now this top is definitely finished!

I think it was well worth the effort of putting borders around it, don't you agree?
I usually make the binding right after finishing the top and put it aside. As you can see, there are  quite a few of them waiting to be put on quilts.
 I'm determined that this summer is going to be the summer of finished quilts! Wish me luck!

But wait, I have a few more things to share today:

My June block for Blogger's BOM, designed by Pam of PamKittyMorning
And just for the thrill to see all the blocks together:

Here's also my Bee block for June. It was already in an envelope, ready to be posted, when I remembered that I didn't take a photo. That explains the wrinkles! 
There are a couple of new "Swaps" and "Quilt-Alongs" going. This first one my blogging friend Jess is organizing together with another blogger. It looks like a lot of fun as well as "educational" by way of learning a few "new tricks" while playing along. What I particular like is that one can choose from three different block sizes. And what I like even more are the terrific prizes which are on offer once the quilts are finished. Click on the logo below to see all the details.
I have also decided to take part in this swap again. This time we're making mini quilts (12 inches square). Interested? Click on this logo to get all the info needed.

As this is my 99th post, next time I will have a little surprise in store for you . Make sure to come back to check it out.

Try to stay cool or warm, depending on where you are in the world.

Liebe Vreni
Das ist ja wirklich mal was ganz anderes in Sachen Hexagonquilt.
Das gefällt mir sehr. Und wie immer finde ich deine Randlösungen total klasse. Erst ein Unistreifen und noch ein halber Hexablock. wundervoll.
Irgendwie hast du auch noch durch akkurates Schneiden auch noch ein Kaleidoskop draus gemacht.


Ganz liebe Grüße aus dem Regen.

Dear Vreni,
Your hexagon quilt top looks stunning!! That border finishes it off perfectly.

Heather said...

I love the hexagon quilt and your border was a perfect finish!

Jessica said...

Your quilt is fantastic Vreni!
Good luck with finishing lots of quilts!
Oh, and thanks heaps for plugging our QAL!

FarahLin said...

Your quilt is absolutely gorgeous!! Love what you did with the borders too - they're so pretty!
Hope you'll meet your goal in getting the quilting done this summer and looking forward to seeing your wonderful work soon!

Hallo Vreni,
dein Hexie-Quilt sieht super aus! Die Umrandung bringt alles sehr harmonisch zusammen. Ganz, ganz klasse! LG Doris

Lynda said...

Border is perfect on a beautiful quilt top. I too have several bindings just waiting, and waiting...

Shirley said...

I shall never tire of seeing this quilt Vreni and will have to keep coming back to look at it. The border is just right. Good luck with the next post and those blocks are so pretty.

Marg said...

Oh Vreni, your hexie quilt looks beautiful. The border finishes it off perfectly. It looks 3D on my iPad.

Linda said...

Wowsa! That top is wonderful. Looks like you put a lot of time into it. Will you quilt it? What designs are you thinking to use? Your Bloggers' BOM blocks look wonderful together. For some reason, I can picture them all put together with a gingham. Does that sound bad? Good for you to be joining in other fun swaps and challenges. I'm feeling the burden of guilt for not completing what I've started, so I'll forego any of them for a while longer. It's sure good to see your quilt-y progress. I hope those bindings become attached to something this summer!

Love your hexie quilt, it was definitely worth doing the borders!

Hello my dear Vreni!
Your work is fantastic as always honey!!! You are so gifted!!! The heat wave in Greece doesn't leave us much to do than keep on having cool baths at home or -for the lucky ones- going to the closest beach!

Janice said...

I love the quilt and I definitely think the borders enhance the quilt. I am getting ready to hit 100 posts myself. I wasn't sure I would hang with it that long.


Janet said...

Your quilt looks amazing with the border, it's such a joyful quilt. It was great to see your blocks all together, you're going great.

I really loved your quilt and was undecided about adding the borders but I think it looks fabulous now that it is on. Great choice and gorgeous quilt.

Thimbleanna said...

Definitely worth those extra borders - what a great addition to the quilt Vreni! Looks like you have some great projects on the go - as always, I love that red and blue!

Fiona said...

Such a pretty hexagon quilt... and also the blocks you are doing are going to look amazing.... great idea with the binding ... it's so lovley to have it all there when it's time to put it on....

Cathy said...

Vreni your hexagon quilt is divine, I love the border you have made, esp the four little hexies in the corners that match the circles in the middles. Best of luck for finishes!!! Your bloggers bom blocks are looking fabulous, I must get mine made too. xo

Gisele said...

I agree Vreni, this top is now complete & stunning! Love the hexagon border, it just finishes the quilt off perfectly! The BOM blocks are looking fab too :)

Kati from Kati's Quilting said...

Beautiful quilt top Vreni, I love the polka dot background! And I think it was a great idea to put the inner border and then the half hexagon flowers. It looks lovely! I love your red and white BOM blocks! The hint of light blue makes them soo pretty!
