Tagalong Baby Quilt and Make Do Memories Miniature Hexagon Quilt

I finally completed my Make Do Memory Miniature Quilt. It was a challenge organized by Lyn. Well and it is this challenge that gave me a new passion: hexagons. I never knew it could be so much fun to work with them. The butterflies are tiny hexagons, the brown border is made of a row whole and half hexagons and the blue ones are only half hexagons. Only the stems are no hexagons.
If you want to read more about the wonderful hexagons Lyn wanted to preserve and other quilts made by the ladies who participated, please go here.

Ik heb eindelijk de Make Do Memory Miniature Quilt af. Deze challenge werd georganiseerd door Lyn. En door deze challenge heb ik een nieuwe passie ontdekt: hexagons. Ik wist niet dat het zo leuk en rustgevend kon zijn, hiermee te werken.
De vlinders zijn van heel kleine hexagons gemaakt, de ene bruine rand van hele hexagons gemaakt en de andere van halve en de blauwe rand is van halve hexagons. Alleen de stengels zijn niet van hexagons gemaakt.
Als je meer over deze prachtige hexagons wilt lezen en andere quilts wilt zien die ermee gemaakt zijn, ga dan hier naartoe.

Dear Lyn, it has been an honor to have been allowed to join this challenge and to have worked with such wonderful blocks! The quilt will have a special place in our home!

Lieve Lyn, het was een eer om met deze challenge mee te mogen doen en met deze blokken te hebben mogen werken. De quilt zal een speciale plek in ons huis krijgen!




*TAGALONG SCHNIBBLES*

This is my April Schnibbles: Tagalong. I made a baby quilt for my friend's soon to be born grandchild. It will be her third! The fabrics I used as so cute! It's Minny Muu by Licien Fabrics.

Hier is mijn Schnibbles Tagalong voor de maand april. Ik heb er dit keer een baby quilt van gemaakt voor het derde kleinkind van een vriendin van mij, dat nog geboren moet worden. De stofjes die ik heb gebruikt zijn zo schattig! Het zijn Minny Muu stofjes van Licien Fabrics.

Liebe Simone,
Dein Hexagonprojekt ist sehr hübsch! Hattest Du dafür wirklich "alte" Hexagons zum verarbeiten?
Der Babyquilt gefällt mir besonders gut, die Farben sind Klasse, es geht für einen Jungen genausogut wie für ein Mädchen.
