Hexagon Update

Yep, I made it round once again, so it must be time for a hexagon quilt update. The weather’s a bit grey and dull today so the light’s not great and doesn’t do justice to all the colours but ho-hum, you get the idea!

Next is a round of dark hexagons, then I might start looking at how to finish it off eg a round of half hexagons to keep the overall hexagon shape but give a straight edge for binding? Or maybe applique the whole kaboodle onto square borders? I dunno. I’ll just keep letting it grow organically and see where it takes me 😉

  1. It’s looking fantastic! I love all the different fabrics. Very effective!

  2. Wow! This is going to be beautiful when you decide to be done! I love the scrappiness of it. My first hexie adventure went similar, not sure when to end it, how to finish it. Then one day it just came to me, though it was much smaller than yours. Can’t wait to see how you finish it!

    Woo-hoo-hoo! Lovely! So nice to see it now, having followed it’s progress. You could just google hexagon quilt images and pick something that makes sense to fill in the corners to turn it into a rectangular shape… most versatile shape for a quilt, if you ask me… You may also find on the net some templates for you to color in – just to plot out your next step. Anyway, whatever you end up doing, you cannot go wrong. Well done!

      Thanks! I have looked at various ideas of how to finish it – and yes, I guess rectangles are more versatile, but I kind of like the idea of keeping it hexagonal…although I have no idea where I will put it…unless I maybe commission a hexagonal bed ha ha!
