Finally done!  This was my very first quilt project; it is all hand done except for the binding.  I made it for my niece--I started it as soon as I learned that my brother was expecting, and she's three months old now so this quilt has been gestating just about as long as she has  Grin



Excuse the not-so-great camera-phone pics, I was about to gift it and thought 'huh, maybe I should take pictures!'  The colors are warmer in real life. 



She seemed pretty happy with it (as much as a 3 month old can be:  she looked at all the patterns and grabbed at it and made cute baby faces), and I'm really proud of how it turned out!

I admire your patience and speed to do a hexagon quilt, all hand quilted as first quilting project - in only that little time.
Wonderful! I love the choice of color, too.
