Another Rotherfield Grey Border

I've finished sewing the next border of my Rotherfield Greys quilt by Di Ford from her book, Primarily Quilts.  The pattern calls for 3/4" hexagons, but I made mine 5/8" just to be sure that they fit inside the border with ample seam allowance.  I made these hexagons from my scrap bag and from scraps from the previous borders.  The photo was taken outside, and it shows the pinks to be brighter than they really are.  Note:  There is finally no snow on the ground!


The next round is half square triangles, and I've started to cut those.


Hope you are finding some time to stitch today!

Thanks for stopping by for a visit!

I like the way the hexagons are connected to each other by the bars. Something different.

Wow ... look at those borders! Fabulous! Wow!

Alas, no stitching here today. DD is sick, so by the time I got home, I needed to write a blog post and get caught up on my blog reading. I know I'll be staying later at DD's tomorrow, too, so I've already packed my hexie project in my car so maybe I'll get in a little stitching when the littles go down for their naps.

Grrr, auto correct has garbled my last two comment tries, sorry about the deletes. I just wanted to say your quilt is looking great, all those stash fabrics are going together beautifully. I have finally ordered the book, I can't wait for it to get here.

Beautiful work, LuAnn! Each row unique, but it all works together so well. Excellent job!

I love this quilt, the fabrics are exactly to my taste. I am a recent convert to medallion quilts. I love it that I don't get bored with one kind of block, when there's another new one on the next round!

Looks gorgeous LuAnn. I love Di Fords book, So many exquisite projects in it that it is very hard to choose which to start first.
Love your border addition.
