I enjoy hand piecing, it's portable and sociable
Ever since I saw this magazine, I was hooked on half inch hexies
The award winning cover quilt is titled Insanity by Rhonda Pearce
10,339 half-inch-a-side hexagons
Rubbish photo, but too big for laying out anywhere in my house
Insanity II started on the 24th July, 2010. The day that a Kaffe Fassett workshop was announced for 2011. I wanted some show and tell for the day. Background Emma Louise 707 and the accent color is a Japanese solid from Amitie Textiles
Insanity III started on the 6th August, 2011. Jo Morton fabrics and a lovely Judy Rothermel turkey red for accent, background is a natural homespun
I don't think it's odd to love a pattern so much that multiple quilts are made
These quilts have taken on a life of their own, they are mini celebrities. I often go places and get asked if I've brought one.
Insanity II is within 1500 pieces of being finished and I'd better get cracking. There's a Kaffe Fasset workshop next year, and I'm GOING!!!!
and if anyone's wondering, I do have several other hexagon quilts on the go.........
