more Hexies

I made good progress this week and finished one more star:
 and one more flower:
 I laid all finished pieces out on the floor and made a group shoot. This is what the design will look like when everything is sewed together.
I realised that I have almost half of the blocks I need! More than I thought! :-)
Next weekend I have to pull out a few more fabrics for the next stars and flowers. Now that I see this picture I realise that I really like the stronger, more 40s-looking fabrics better that the very pastel 30s fabrics in this particular quilt. So I´ll see what I have in my stash.

Again I´m linking up with One Flower Wednesday and with 
WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

Liebe Steffi,

das sieht ja super aus. Und Du warst so fleißig.
Du hast eine super schöne bunte Frabzusammenstellung. Das wird ein traumhafter Quilt.
Ich freue mich ihn weiter beim Wachsen zu beobachten.
Liebe Grüße Grit

I have such hexi envy. This quilt is charming.

These are all beautiful!

Have you seen Nancy Zieman's template for these? I got to meet her and see her demonstrations on quilts.
She made a template so you only sew straight lines! It's really neat if you want a squared up quilt or wall hanging, and it comes in different sizes.

Wow! Such a beautiful quilt that will be!

Green Gardner said...

I love the way this is looking...maybe I will do this with mine! I am only doing a crib size quilt...maybe I can count from your picture an estimate of how many Hexi's I will need...do you happen to know?

Very nice layout. I am just finishing a pillow using up some extra hexagons, using the star layout. Never thought about mixing in some flowers. Very nice!
