So, both my parents are turning 65 this year and I decided to make them a quilt as a joint birthday gift. I've been curious about the one-block wonder quilts for a while and decided that this was the perfect opportunity to try one. I might be slightly insane.
Anyway, after seven months of off-and-on quilting, I ended up with this:

I saw the panel idea on another one-block wonder quilt online and liked it because it broke it up a bit, so that's what I did. Some close-ups of the panels:
There are 216 hexagons in the quilt, for a total of 1296 triangles. Remind me not to make another one of these for a while! Some close-ups of the hexagons:
For the back I had some of the original fabric left over, so I used that in the middle. The first bird border around it is the half-hexagons that didn't make it onto the front, while the second bird border is the strips I had left after having cut the strips from the fabric repeats.
