hexies 13 rings colour

469.  That’s how many hexagons I’ve sewn together for this quilt.  Phew.

I love the soothing, meditative, repetitive nature of making this quilt.  I feel a connection to women from the past, ancestors.  So it’s only fitting that I should photograph it in sepia tones I think 🙂

    Gorgeous! What an accomplishment! Is it all finished now? Where will you use it?

      Thanks Andria! I am not sure when it will be finished…but I think I will keep going until it’s big enough for a bed quilt. Probably at least another 600 hexagons!!

    That’s a lot of little hexagons to sew together…and how many more to go! It looks beautiful in color and in sepia tones. Either way it’s a masterpiece!

  4. Oh I really want to learn how to quilt!! Beautiful!

    Wow – it is stunning! And that is a LOT of hexagons. I know what you mean about that connection to the past….I feel like that when I’m hand quilting.
