LIttle Hexie quilt finished!

 It's always a good feeling to finish a project. I had loaded my little hexie quilt the other night and it didn't take that long to quilt it yesterday. I tried  Glide thread for the first time. It was recommended to me,so I bought a spool of white. I hadn't tried it because I was afraid it might not work well on my machine. I didn't want to mess up a quilt!
 So I got brave and tried it on this one. (smaller quilt, not as far to unsew if I have to...) It worked really well. I didn't have any problems with tension, or breakage so I will definitely use it again.
 I used one of my favorite pantos...this one really comes out nice.
 I had a splashy tie dye type fabric that was the right size for the back.
 After I got it trimmed I finished with a binding the same fabric as the border. It's such a happy little quilt, I love it!
 I hope you are having a wonderful 4th of July! My daughters are coming over later for a cookout and fireworks.
