That looks beautiful.. can't wait to see it finished...


It's going to be a wonderful quilt. I can't believe how much you've done already. My hexagon quilt is my in-between project and is going verrry slooooowly!

Wow wow wow, that looks amazing. I've been told that sewing hexagons together is difficult, actually I find sewing squares together is difficult. I'm so impressed with the progress you've made and the fact you are prepared to tackle such a massive project, I mean labour of love.

I made a pillow of hexagons once and the lady that was showing me, made me a babyquilt of them. I thought you meant on the top of the bed, as in top third, away from the feet and I thought...That could look neat to have the rest of the bed with a different pattern! Then I figured out you meant the whole TOP of the bed.. :0)


apieceofwood - neither can I! The fabrics are so fabulous they're spurring me on to get it done.

Theresa - fancy a race ;-))

Jenny - it's the actual pushing the needle through the layers of fabric that's the toughest bit. You need a thimble and your hands get so sore and tired from holding tiny hexagons in one rigid position.

Karen Sue - I'm doing the WHOLE top of the quilt because I'm not very imaginative and I would have to come up with a design for the rest of the quilt if I just did the part covering the pillows!


This looks really lovely already! I can not wait to see the finished result (will you please let me know when you get to that point?) It looks very much like my hexagon quilt, which is one of my favourites. It is sitting on my kitchen table "as we speak"... I made it a few years ago out of (mostly) Cath Kidston fabrics, and would love to make another one with her fabrics, one of these days...


Hi Mia - of course I'll come over and tell you when it's done! I remember your hexagon quilt - perhaps that was in my mind when I started doing this one. I always thought it looked amazing on your kitchen table.
