So, a couple of months ago, I decided to start a hexagon quilt. My first thought about hand sewing a hexagon quilt was that it would take too long to complete that it would wind up in that unfinished project pile. But, I found that there is something very meditative about sewing these pieces together. There is no deadline. There is no pressure... and I love it.
Here's my update on this quilt. Since October's post, I've been able to create 300+ hexagon basted shapes:
And, after deciding that I want to have a value quilt (i.e. light color that goes into darker shades), I started arranging the hexagon pieces into flower shapes to be sew together.
And, for the sewing... So far, I have about 50 heart flower shapes sewn together. They are sewn into these shapes because it is so transportable this way and easy to group 7 hexagons together at a time. When they are finally all put together as a quilt, there should be no sign of a flower shape, since I'm (for the most part) randomly placing fabric patterns together.
