Hexagons by Amber

I love hexagon quilts, but I will only hand piece them.  Strangely that is so much easier than to piece them by machine.  I don't have to deal with "Y" seams, and look at the collection of them that Amber has here!  I also love the gradation of  color from light to dark. 

Here are the threads the we used.  Glide "Hawaiian Blue" and Bottom Line in the bobbin
The backing really shows the quilting.  I did continuous curves in the hexagons, a leaf design in the first border, and randomly stitched in the ditch on the outer border.
