yes I find I am really addicted to hexagons. When I first learnt Patchwork and Quilting, must have been in a past life, well lets say about 40 years ago - tempus fugit, I learnt English Paper Piecing, another term for hexagons and thought oh yes interesting but I can never see myself making anything with them and that was that.
Fast forward to November 2014 and we now have hexagons coming out my ears.
These are all WIP's (works in progress for the uninitiated). Hopefully bed quilts.
I have even been inspired to make small bags
But the Queen of the hexies is going to be this one
This is a pattern from Geta Gama one over talented very very clever lady. The Scot says he admires her and doesn't know how she managed to work it out. If you want more eye candy go to
The Master Plan
2 rows of hexies cut and ready to join
Slow work but getting there
The colours aren't true. I took at least 6 photos with different settings but I think the purple fabric has a mind of its own.
A zillion thanks to Geta for her excellent pattern, she even marks the direction of the pieces.
(Yes the papers are removed before quilting Jules:)). but I must admit I have still had to do a tad unpicking when I joined the wrong pieces together. Many a slip twixt cup and lip.
A great project for taking with me to the various Hospitals appointments, The Scot says I am in my own little world. I sit there with my ear phones listening to the current book and stitching away. At least I am not bored.
And I can't wait to finish, I will get someone to quilt it on their Quilting Machine. I had one quilted before, and even tho it cost it was well worth it. So for special quilts I let the experts quilt them.
This is the quilt that was quilted and I didn't regret it,
I must stitch faster as there is another pattern I want to buy from Geta.
