Whoop Whoop – Another Round of Hexagons

It’s getting harder to photograph this quilt, as it’s getting so biiiig. The best light in the house is in Gman’s room so I went there to take the photo (hence the random pieces of lego etc around the edges)

Here it is a bit closer up:

I’m beginning to concede that a hexagon shaped quilt may not be all that practical, so I am going to start squaring off the corners next, still with alternate rows of light/medium/light/medium/light/dark. Fingers crossed it will turn out ok!

    Wow, love this! There are so many different fabrics in there!

      Thank you! It was originally going to be a “proper” charm quilt ie no two fabrics the same but that was just impossible, especially with the light coloured fabrics. But yes, there are LOADS of different fabrics 🙂

  2. It looks great – so many fabrics, so much interest for the eye.

    Looking good! My charm hexagon quilt isn’t supposed to have any duplicates, but I’ve mistakenly copied two fabrics (two pairs of same fabric)… sigh… not taking it out now, though. Are yours 1-inch hexies? I have some duplicates (and some darks/browns that will not work in “the pelt” if you want them). no charge.

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
