Hexagon quilt update

Hi everyone,

I can't believe it was january when I last blogged about my quilt. I finally got round to putting a few more rows in my quilt.

One of the wedding favours from my friends wedding last month was a jar of sweets so I saved the fabric from the top and put it into my quilt. It's the green piece with the 3 red flowers. 

I got a scrap pack with some lovely batik fabric scraps in last week, so they went in too. Laura's Hexagon quilt has reached almost 1200 hexagons and is huge. Mine has around 240 in. I've managed to have a few evenings where I've been able sew 20 or so hexies in. I also got all the fabric from Teresa cut ready to make into hexies too.

This is the last blog picture of the quilt. This was taken in January.

Most of the hexagons I've added over the last couple of weeks are to the left hand side. 

Here are a few close ups. I really like the yellow section

and the beach hut...

I'm off to watch the F1 and sew in a hexagon or 3! 

Thanks for reading


  1. Great job! It looks pretty big to me...

  2. Wow it's looking so

  3. Very lovely. Patchwork is something I have never tried, one of the ladies at the new craft group on a Thursday is doing one of these so I have been able to see it close up each week and watch it grow. Such a lot of work goes into it.

  4. Oh my - you are one brave woman! This is amazing!!!

  5. Wow! That is looking so amazing!!! Xxx

  6. Looking great! Some lovely new fabric to go in there :-)
