The doll quilt I made.

This is the doll quilt I made for Cindy. The top photo shows the colours more accurately. I forgot to take a photo of the completed quilt until I was at the post office. Fortunately I had my camera in my bag, but their lighting is pretty awful! The hexies were little, but not tiny. (I'm sure you've all got a fix on their size now after that description!) Hand pieced and hand quilted I left the edge all hexie-like, so instead of a typical binding I slip stitched the front to the back. I'm quite happy with how it turned out and Cindy likes it too! I am looking forward now to round two of the swap.

Very pretty, it's always a dilemma on how to finish a hexagon quilt, keeping the nice edges as you have done is the nicest way, although I wouldn't like to do it for a really large quilt ;)
