    Lovely. Thanks for linking up with Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal and congrats on your finish.

  2. This is such a pretty baby quilt <3 Someday I want to make a hexagon quilt (fabric and pattern are in my stash).

    Look at you be all daring with the quilting!! I need to come and spend time with you and learn your magic.

    Lots to relate to here: first as you know I love this quilt, and am sorely tempted to make one, second I learned of this slick way to make hexagons thanks to Bethany Reynolds’ Stack ‘n Whack years ago, and oh BOY can I relate to the plexiglass near miss, except mine was a hit. I died. it was on white fabric no less. I did get it mostly out and never did tell Dayna as it was her humongous gorgeous, heavily quilted graduation from university quilt!! Finally yay Angela designs, and yay YOU! It looks spectacular thus far, and I cannot wait to see the finish. And remember to breathe (and have a glass of wine, seriously) and to step back and look and not judge with your nose 5″ away from the quilt.

  5. Congratulations on meeting and exceeding your goal. It is a sweet quilt. Love those hexies! Good Luck on the quilting job when you find/found a thread that works. Looking forward to reading about your tips. I sure need them these days 😉 Carol

    I love a nested seam too! Your quilting is coming along. I look forward to seeing this one completed!

    It can be frustrating and challenging to get something to your satisfaction and to solve things like thread breaks. But very satisfying when you finally nail it. Love the one you’ve shared, looks awesome.

  8. I agree with the other Laura: looks terrific and looking forward to the post sharing the troubles and tips learned along the way.
    Have a great weekend…whew, made it through another week!

    Why do our machines give us fits and get so finicky when we are trying to do everything just so? You have beautiful quilting in that block and those points matching were great. Looking forward to all the tips and tricks.

    Hello Roseanne, Sorry about the troubles you have encountered quilting this wonderful quilt. Yet, the one block that you showed. It does look fantastic! I hope the remainder of your quilting goes much better and I look forward to your post on what you have learned. Have a spectacular day!

  11. GREAT quilt! and the quilting is really fitting for it! Hope you figured out what made your thread break – every so often I get a spool that just does not like me!

  12. I agree with everyone…the colors are great and I’m sure your quilting will be beautiful! Have a great weekend!

  13. Good for your for sticking with quilting, Roseanne! (P.S. Fear not the y-seam! It is easily tamed!)

  14. That’s so awesome. I am sorry for the trouble quilting, but I do look forward to your tips! That one is perfect and you should be so darn happy with it. I love that you were able to stay on the correct side of that perfect straight line and hit the centers – that is worth everything. The baby will love this as will the parents knowing all the love put into this quilt.

    This is a great baby quilt. I love Stonehenge fabrics. Good job on figuring out the quilting. And I definitely have to have a ruler to stitch in the ditch!

    Whoo hooo glad you got that thread thing solved, good is done even if it isn’t the color of thread you wanted. Hitting the middle-good job!!

    Better late than never, Roseanne. Loved your Thursday post…that cat picture saying is a hoot. And I also like the ones with the cat speaking to Karen.
    Smiled all the way through those kid’s photos so thanks for that.
    Your quilted block is perfect there. It sounds like quite a learning lesson for you…something I could never attempt on a machine but perhaps by hand. Thanks as well for taking us through it. I love reading about the process.

  18. Dawn says:

    I like your quilting pattern within the hexagons! It is going to look terrific when it is complete! I also have had thread breakage issues which confound me because they happen after I’m partially finished quilting the quilt. I’ve changed the needle, rethreaded the machine and bobbin and even cleaned the bobbin area. Any insight you have as to why this happens, I’d be happy to hear about.

  19. So glad you got that quilting issue figured out. This is a fun idea for a baby quilt, and I like the colors!

    I like your hexie – I have a half hexie die I was cutting some pieces from it last year from scraps and never got back to it – one day?

  21. Laura says:

    What you have shown looks terrific, Roseanne! I look forward to the post sharing the troubles and the tips that you learned! 🙂
