Quilting Works in Progress with
Actually going faster than I’d thought it would! And oh the color!
No lack of fun whimsical prints as centers either. Have decided I’m shooting for a baby quilt. We’ll see how it goes!
Pretty! Are you going to do white around these. I love it already!
Not sure about white – just making lots of the flowers for now and I’ll see where it leads me!
wow, alissa! this looks amazing!
There is too much hex tempataion lately. You’re killing me.
oh my gosh!!!! i LOVE THiS idea of how you are using the hexes! love it!
I am in love with these cute hexes – they look like flowers!! I follow your blog but would love some more information on them. Are you doing them by hand or on the machine and where did you get the pattern? They are beautiful! Deborah
Hi Deborah! This is all done by hand. Both basting the hexes around the paper and then sewing the hexes together. Slow going but just something I work on in the evenings when I watch a bit of t.v.! No pattern but if you Google “paper piecing hexagons” you’ll find all the info you need!
They look so great!! One day I’ll get into hexes but I know I’ll be obsessed so I’m saving them for a long trip when I don’t have my sewing machine hehe
Incredibly gorgeous! I can’t wait to see what becomes of them!
Love the solid colors with the fun center. I might give my civil war reproduction print hexes away to a good home….and start over with fun solids and happy prints.
This is such a cool riff off the old Grandmother’s Flowergarden hex quilt. Love it!
what luscious colors…they make my mouth water! i can’t wait to see them all put together!! what a great idea for a baby quilt, and all those colors will be so stimulating to his/her little eyes.
Very cute Ashley!
Sorry I meant to say very cute Alissa! I got my blogs confused lol
ooohhh lovely. love those solids. can’t wait to see them all together.
Oh I love the way you are doing these. So great surrounded by solids!!
Oh, your solids are so pretty! I’ve been hooked on hexagons lately and started a charm quilt. I can’t wait to see yours evolve!
LOVE this!! I took an English Paper Piecing class this past Saturday and now I’m hooked. I love the handsewing, especially while watching TV. It’s a nice alternative to breaking out the sewing machine (since I don’t have a dedicated sewing room — yet).
I was just flicking through blogs today determined not to comment much so I could get on with things but I had to stop here because your pic is so cute. I love the staging and the colors. This is lovely. Or going to be something lovely.
Ooh, I’m totally loving these! I’m a total sucker for anything rainbow-y and can’t wait to see how it comes together.
love the centers…i can hardly believe you’re doing this all by hand…amazing!
Oh my word! These are adorable, great idea! I am working on some hexes in hope valley and I am already thinking baby quilt, ha.
Oh! I hate those!
(just wanted to be different)
Um, wow. My hands hurt to see how much you have done. Gonna be beautiful, though.
Alissa, thanks again for your information. I have the hexes and have started putting them together. Where and how is the backing done – one flower at a time?? Thanks for your help – Deborah
Alissa thanks os much for the info on the hexagons!! I am so enjoying doing them and feel like I’m getting the hang of it, some trial and error!! I did figure out how to do the backing – sorry – don’t know what I was thinking as I have done several quilts before, brain fog I suppose. Anyway I posted some pictures on the ones I have completed on my blog last night. Would love to share with you and again A BIG THANKS!! Deborah http://www.scott3pi.blogspot.com
