99 Hexagaons

It's very cold over here which meant that I could not spent that much time in the sewing room. Somehow the heater does not seem to reach that far and the room is seriously cold...not very conducive to FMQ when you are wearing heavy duty Ugg boots!

So I went into the lounge and continued on my hexagons...

I should call this quilt the $2 quilt. I found two packets of charm squares in the sales for only a couple of dollars some time ago and then I also found some matching bigger pieces for the borders for about $6. This will be a very cheap quilt indeed. Continued to cut out the fabric and glued them around my pre-purchased 2" hexagons.


I then laid out the hexagons...99 in total until I was happy with the distribution of colours. Oops, also noticed that I sometimes did not follow the directional fabric. Given the busy nature of the prints, this should not matter that much. Took a photo on the Ipad as a guide for the layout and have started sewing them together. Slow process...I am in my third row!

  1. What a bargain quilt it will be!! Great find. I love the colours and think a hexie quilt is perfect. Hope your sewing room warms up soon (mine has the opposite problem - it gets hotter than the rest of the house!).
