Hi Susan, thanks for inviting me to contribute something to this blog. I am a patchworker that makes all my quilts by hand and I love hexagons, and used it in my very first quilt. I do all my quilts regardless of the size of the pattern pieces the EPP way except for my last quilt that was an Hawaiian quilt. The quilt shown here was started on the plane going to the US from South Africa to visit my twin brother in Texas and finished once I was home. I bought materials everywhere I was taken by my sister-in-law and my brother and it is a fun reminder of those happy days. It still needs quilting.

Welcome! This is a real nice piece of handwork. And it must be a great memory quilt. I'd like to see more of your quilts her, please.

This is such a pretty quilt! Love the colours used. I'll often look at something I've made and it'll take me right back to the place where I made it. This is a great keepsake of your trip to the US. Wendy x
