A finish and a challenge

Today I will reveal my finished triangle quilt that I named Summer Fun! Back in July I showed you the top before the borders. It is now completely finished. YAY!
The white borders are also triangles and half is hard 
to see in this picture.
I built this quilt around the multi colored staggered line fabric ~ Boho by Urban Chiks, added Dots to Dots by Patrick Loose in orange, red, green, blue, and gray, then added the geometric shapes from my stash and several Kona solids. 
Here you can see the border along the bottom better. 
This quilt finishes at 68" x 81". A nice size for a picnic quilt for my nephew, his girlfriend and daughter. Hope they like it...I will delivery it later today.
The quilting is called honeycomb quilting which basically is a long, large zigzag that I found on Amanda Jean's blog crazy mom quilts.
The backing is a red on red print, which I love, and the binding is scrappy from the fabrics used on the top.
Here is a close up of the quilting. Sorry the colors are so horribly washed out but it was a very sunny day. 

I also finished my August Rainbow Scrap Challenge block. August color is red! You can see a scrap from the backing of the triangle quilt on the upper right. Pretty!
I have been working on my hexagons too! Hopefully have progress pictures to show soon!
