Yesterday. Today.

Hexagonning all day long

Yesterday I cut out and basted almost 100 background hexagons.

Today I wanted to make this quilt my own, and auditioned fabric from my stash.

Today I had to decide on stripe placement. Was this one the best?

No, this one is.

Today I found a new favourite block.

Tomorrow it will no doubt have a different favourite.

  3. This is gorgeous! I need another hobby like... well, I just don't. But quilting has been on my "list" for years. Definitely like the second version better, with the stripes radiating from the center.

  4. I love this quilt. I've just finished making just short of 1000 hexies into flowers and was contemplating whether to just sew them together or to add a contrasting background hex. After seeing your lovely quilt it really is no contest...I need to add that background. Thank you for inspiring me.
