Finished! Thanks 2017 Hive 3 Hivemates

I just now finished my 2017 Hive 3 quilt, and I LOVE how it turned out.  I really love how the scrappy blocks work well together.  I added sashing to separate the busy blocks a bit and to make up for some inconsistencies in the size of the blocks.  I densely straight-line quilted it, and added a mottled turquoise binding from my stash. 

 This will be a gift for a niece who is learning to sew.  I hope she likes it, I know I do!  Thanks to my talented hive-mates for your lovely blocks.

I know she'll be thrilled about this quilt. Great hive quilt, they don't always get that nice with different makers. You asked about my La Passion. It took me 5 years to get all the 17 000 hexies joined together. Just now I'm quilting it by hand. And next year it's going to an exhibition in Germany, Nadelwelt.

How could she not love it?!? So beautiful and bright! The quilting is perfect, not detracting from the design at all!
