The hexagon quilt has been sadly neglected this year. A few days ago I pulled it out and inspired by Faeries and Fibres decided to try a new (to me) way of adding the hexagons. You see I’ve been adding each hexagon individually and it’s been very slow. However, sewing a strip of hexagons and then adding that strip has significantly speeded up the process.
I now have a square top.
This is going to be a queen-sized top, so there’s a long way to go.
But I’m pleased with how it is coming together. It’s a riot of colour.
Gorgeous Man asked if I would be doing another one and I replied that I would. But I would use only one pattern for the quilt next time. Perhaps it’s my sewing, but each of the patterns make a slightly different sized hexagon which makes challenges putting them together.
I’m now putting this together so quickly that I need to prep some more pieced hexagons to add.
