Hexagons on the Sofa

I (finally) finished the latest round of hexagons. The light rounds are the least fun, cos there’s not as much colour to play with, but I know they are needed to give the eye somewhere to rest so I plod on ;-). The patchwork is now big enough to just about cover our two seater sofa as you can see:

The next round will be a round of medium value colours, so I get to play with oranges, pinks, greens, blues…fun!

    Still no idea how far you will go with this? The Guinness Book might be a goalpost? Or even just another sign post … πŸ™‚

    I’m hoping to do the same. . .may only get large enough to cover a pillow, but watching you and how gorgeous your hexie blanket is gives me the push I need! Here’s to plodding on!

    Oh, I am always to happy to see an update of that quilt… so beautiful! Have you given it any thought how to turn it into a square or rectangle yet? My hexagons are neatly folded away… until I get another burst of hexagomania!

      I have decided not to turn it into a square or rectangle, but keep the overall hexagon shape. I’ll end on a dark ring of half hexagons so that I have straight edges for binding. Well, that’s the plan at the moment anyway πŸ™‚

    I love hexagons – going back to my roots, I think, but this one is lovely and you got past the bathmat size. Good for you!
