Hexagon Quilt Top: Check!



Thar she blows... 
One entirely-handstitched-and-made-of-scraps hexagon quilt top, if you can believe!


All I have to do now is sandwich, baste and hand-quilt the thing. Phewf... I may be a while, eh?


But first, a rest.

  5. Michele, it is gorgeous! I love the way you planned and staggered the colors. I particularly love the red on the top and bottom. Are you planing on leaving the edges or are you squaring it up? I love them as they are now. What a feat!

  11. OMG, I do think this may be the first actually-finished hexie quilt top I have seen! :-) And it's stunning. Absolutely stunning. Your use of colors, that linear pattern with the patches - just a work of art.

    ...Yes take as much rest as you need before you finish this baby!

    This is STUNNING. BEAUTIFUL. ASTONISHING. GORGEOUS. really really AMAZING.

    I love how you've grouped the colors, it's scrappy and orderly at the same time. Stunning.

  20. I had a similar reaction to Lori... I gasped so hard my girls came running to see what was wrong! Un-freaking-believable, Michele. You have totally outdone yourself. I bow down to the queen of hexagons. I am in absolute awe. You must be so proud (and happy :) that the top is done.

  45. That is beautiful. I have one of these that I sew on from time to time when I don't have anything else going. I will probably have it finished by the time my boy graduates high school (he's 2 now). I love the fact that fiber arts are coming back "in style". I've always been a crafter and I am so glad I happened to come across your blog. I will be a regular now!!!

  56. This is beautiful! I'm taking the Block of the Month class, too, and the hexi blocks were some of my most favorite...since we learned those I've been planning to make a hexi quilt...I just have to get finished with my BOM quilt first (it's my first one!). In fact, I'm working on it right now and that's how I stumbled upon your blog - trying to get inspiration on how to hand quilt the various blocks.

    ReplyDelete
  57. wow. that is absolutely beautiful and entirely inspiring!

    ReplyDelete
  58. I can only repeat what others have said, this quilt IS a masterpiece. Absolutely astonishing to look at. I have seen many quilts I love, but this one instantly became my favorite quilt. I truly believe it should already reside in a museum to be protected and saved for all the upcoming generations. Thank you very much for sharing your work. I go back to my work table truly inspired.
