Hexy Big Balls is all finished!I

I started Big Hexy Balls in August 2013.  I was working on it again at the beginning of the month - unpicking some bad quilting and quilting it up differently. 

It went well and I thought I had finished it - or maybe not! 

I sat on it for a while and then I just decided it was finished and I should bind it after all.  

It was all going to be bound in Kona Ocean just like the background.   Then I decided to add a little detail where the hexies met the binding....

It was fiddly but I think it worked well enough.  It adds another bit of interest to a fairly minimalist quilt.

I was all set to finish off the binding by hand but I just thought how boring that would be.  So I finished it off by top stitching it on the machine.

And now it is all finished indeed...

Another UFO bites the dust!  This is one from my FAL 2015 list for Quarter One 

and I'm linking it up
