Hexagon Progress

My little pile of hexagons are all stitched together, and I’ve cut some grey squares, hexed them up, and started to join them together.

This is how I had planned that they’d be joined….

20131113-170125.jpg…but it looks like……well, a mess!! The Flower Garden design gets lost without an obvious delineation. It needs to be unpicked: I’ve stitched the pieces so well, I can’t see the thread to begin to unpick it, so I’ve done a Scarlett, fiddle-dee-dee!, and opted to try another lay out instead.

Like this….

Does mean though, I need to cut a Huuuuge amount of grey bits! And I’m taking the papers out as I go and reusing them….

Linking up with Blossom Heart Quilts for Sew Cute Tuesday (yes, I know it’s Wednesday!!)

  1. Lovely hexies. I’m glad you’ve converted. I like the new layout better even though it means adding a huge amount of grey bits. Well done Meredithe.

    What a waste of time – what is wrong with using Meredithe Clark’s signature collection templates like I did – noooo triple handling!!!!!!!

  3. I was just thinking of the second layout, when I scrolled down and found that you had used it! The grey “path” will be lovely for showinng off some beautiful hand quilting ……..

    Love the hexes and the grey is perfect and yes you will have to do heaps. I saw a video with some extra tips on quiltindex.org they punch a hole in the centres of papers for easier removal of papers.

  5. I like the new layout. Is that freezer paper you used or did you use a fabric glue?
    Interesting looking technique. Looking forward to seeing your process.

    I love the fabrics you’ve chosen Meredithe. You can always make a pillow out of your first attempt — there are lots of hexie quilts out there that don’t have the “path” running through them!

  7. That looks like a lot of fun! I enjoy reading your blog. Very inspiring!

Thank you for taking the time to comment - reading them makes my day!
