    Hexagon quilt finish?

    This is how far I've come with my mad project of making a hexagon charm quilt (charm = every hexagon is unique and from a different fabric than any other hexagon). It's long enough that I've started thinking about how to finish it... And I'm just not sure! At the moment I'm leaning towards making half hexagons in gray to make the edge even and then have the same gray as backing.

    I would LOVE some input! Any ideas?

    The quilt so far (I'm currently attaching the top two rows of flowers):

    The side edge looks like this:

    The five rows that are to be attached:

    That is absolutely beautiful! I love all the colours and I admire the patience that you have to work with all of those small pieces. i agree with you ... I would use a grey - probably a medium to dark one - for the border and backing. I'm impressed!

          Anna, this is gorgeous! I'm not experienced enough to give any advice on finishing, just wanted to tell you how beautiful this is. I also would like to know how long you have been working on this.

            Thanks peeps! About a year but only in front of the telly, at the cottage etc. A lot of the hexagons are made from scraps donated by or exchanged with friends here on the forum.

                Wow , you are fast girl!

                This is gorgeous! I think your idea with the border would work great!

                  hi Anna,
                  Your hexie quilt turns out great. How many hexies are in your quilt? The idea with a neutral grey border is "génial". I still have to sew some rows on my forgetmenothexiequilt. Wouldn't that be a great word for some scrabble player?
                  I'm awaiting pictures of your hexiequilt eagerly.

                      My daughter just finished her hexie top and is ready to sandwich. She added navy blue to even out the sides then cut edges straight and added a 3" border. I liked the idea of adding the border because it framed the hexies.

                      Your top is beautiful.

                        That is so beautiful. I'm not sure I'll ever have the patience to make one like it. Great job and the colors are great.

                          Anna I've been waiting to see this and it's absolutely beautiful! No matter how you border it I think it will be amazing. I would personally try and keep the front unique and maybe try and use different grey fabrics for the half hexagons in the same color range. Although like I said no matter how you finish it off it will be amazing
                          Thank you,

                            That looks great, really stunning! Thanks for the idea.

                            I'm not sure how many hexagons are in my quilt, I think 1500ish? I'll count them, some day.
