Hexagons from Espritpatch

You probably know that I love hexagons and play with them often. Hexagons is also the theme of this Tuesday Archive over on Val's blog. So how many quilts have I got to show you with hexagons.... well I guess this will be none... :-( I have plenty of hexagons WIP but no finished quilt as such.

Feline Friday from A Hug Delights

The batting has been found!  I decided not to piece the backing, because I don't really have enough left overs.  I used all of the layer cake and only had border yardage.  I should have enough left to use for binding.  I went through some backing choices.
