Let me share the pictures with you.
I ran through my fabrics and decided to use Lecien fabrics from the 30's old collection and Retro Child's Smile. Oooh... they are simply adorable with retro vintage kind of colours.

After completing, I wanted to sew the edges with the hexagon finishing instead of straight lines. I browsed through the online tutorials and found Badskirt who gave a good tutorial on how to finish the way I wanted with a slight twist in mine. Instead of using full hexagons, I used half. :)

My daughter commented that the floral backing fabric looked like a garden. I said it looked very vintage. The pink border is sewed up with half hexagons.
