InstructionsI just made this up using hexagons and drew and appliqued the geckos and butterflies - no pattern as such!
Type of item: Functional
100% cotton fabric and thread, polyester batting
What was your inspiration?
This was my first ever quilt and took me a year of handpiecing hexagons. I made it back in 2004 when my son was small but he still loves it :) He liked lots of dramatic colours so we used bright scraps and also cut up old clothes that he loved that were too small to make hexagons, He had a thing about geckos at the time so we appliqued them over the finished quilt, then I had it professionally stipple quilted because I hadnt worked out how to quilt yet! :)
What are you most proud of?
That I actually finished it - a bit of a challenge for a first quilt :)
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
be patient and make lots of hexagons !
