    I started my hexagon quilt but I got it in my silly head that I wanted to do a Wizard of Oz STORY quilt!!! To use color to tell the story and visuals on the back! YEAH so I started collecting the right fabric in 2009! CRAZY RIGHT!!!
    But It’s going to be my MASTERPIECE!!!
    Till then I have to take satisfaction in watching you get yours done!!!

    It’s lovely! and the light from the snow is a great idea to show it off best. Are those your hand and feet showing, or is that your brave helper???

    did you know that fresh fallen snow is a great idea for cleaning quilts and handmade rugs? you flop them down and lift them up fast, and all the dust is held in the snow, like magic! I do this with a hand hooked antique rug which can’t tolerate vacuuming or anything like that.This won’t apply to the work you’re showing though, just made me remember this old tip.

      Thanks Liz! And I will make a not of the tip re cleaning quilts with snow – I have never heard of that!
      Yes, that’s my hands and feet. My brave helper (12 year old son!) was the one with the camera though 😉

  3. supercool! many hours of stitching in there – is it by hand? Kudos for braving the elements too! 🙂

    Own up! You’re just trying to hide that milk maid top. 😛

  5. Gjeometry says:

    Oooh, love this! Will you use it as a quilt, table topper or a wall hanging? I can’t figure out from the pic.

    SUCH a gorgeous project! I love your “house cozy” comment, above…makes me smile! This is an heirloom, to be sure.

    • vivjm says:

      Aw, thank you – I enjoy making it so much, that I don’t really mind what it turns into – there will be plenty of memories & moments stitched in there 🙂

    I’m glad you braved the cold because that quilt is looking more beautiful each time I see it.

    And it is appreciated. gorgeous work!

  11. textileshed says:

    wow wow wow, how are you going to finish it… like make it quilt shaped… or is it going to stay hexagon shaped…? I cannot wait!

    • vivjm says:

      I think I will have to keep it hexagon shaped…it just seems the right thing to do. Probably when I get to the outer borders, I will use half-hexagons so at least I have a straight edge to bind but the overall shape will still be hexagon.

I will reply to comments here on the blog, so please check back if you are looking for a response! I love hearing from you x
