The hexagon quilt top is done! I have been working on this hexi quilt for 2 years. The quilt began as a much smaller project and it grew and grew. It is now big enough for a full size bed and I really love it. I was interested in starting a hexagon quilt after seeing some on other blogs. The inspiration was to use some of the cute modern fabrics in this traditional flower setting of hexagons. I began with 2 charm packs of the Verna fabrics by Kate Spain but evolved with many, many of my own scraps, and many collected from friends. I used an off white cotton sateen to set the flower blocks. I think it gives a nice contrast with all the fun prints in pink, aqua, yellow and a soft green.
Now all I need is to do is get it basted (my least favorite part of the process) and figure out how I am going to quilt it. I have a few ideas, but really not sure on the quilt design.
Thanks for stopping by, this is my first blogpost. I hope to highlight some of my recent and future projects. I am always busy with quilts, knitting, I do oil paintings and sometimes home dec sewing. So there should be some fun posts.
