ds hexagons

As soon as I saw the cover to {this magazine}, I knew I needed to make the cover quilt. When JoAnn fabrics released a line from Denyse Schmidt, it was a match made in heaven.
The top came together quickly, but I had a hard time sitting down to quilt it. I decided on a spiral pattern, and after I quilted the majority of it, I decided I hated the quilting design. Bummer. I pressed on and finished it in the spiral... mostly because I just couldn't stand the thought of spending hours with the seam ripper. In the end, I like it better than I thought I would. I embraced the wonky quilting and decided to love it for what it is.
 Turns out it's a perfect size for Mr as a playmat outside while the girls play.
