Hexifest

I know I have only just posted but I wanted to show you my progress on my hexagon quilt top and I wanted to show you it all on its own little post so it feels special.  I started it on the 25 Feb so its been on the go almost a month and it is coming on well.  I was inspired to begin the hexies by sally at Robin Red who had joined the Wednesday Hexalong you can find the info on Sally's blog as I can't manage to do the link properly.  Anyhow here it is in all its glory my hexagon quilt so far:-


Getting bigger all the time covers the Ikea chair now


Oh sewing machine box and ironing pile in the background!  Quilts pretty though.

Some of my vintage fabrics - the circus one, the blue dots and flowers and the heavily flower pattern one.


Hexies to sew and squares and papers.

I am enjoying the process and trying to keep the quilt rectangular (if that makes sense) so I can stop when I have had enough.  I have another hex quilt somewhere in my WIP pile that is sort of a granny's garden pattern but the shape has gone a little bit crazy which put me off finishing it.  I will dig it out - ha a joke dig/garden - and show you all.  I am going now as I am starting to type rubbish.  Night night.

Its amazing! Yours is growing so quickly! I'm feeling very lazy, mine has sort of come to a halt, I've one managed one more flower this week, as I've flitted between doing a bit of my crochet blanket, the Shalom cardigan, and making fancy dress costumes for comic relief at school... Must get stitching in front of the tv tonight :-)
