Completely Hexed!!

I'm such a sucker!! I just have to see a picture of something I like and I'm already starting a project that I know I really don't have the time for. You'd think I'd learn my lesson...
(I know I'm not alone in this boat)


But in my defence starting a new project is so exciting and trying out hexagons for the first time just got my curiosity going. Since I started though I can't stop. 


This is the quilt that finally got me to try it out. I L-O-V-E it. I haven't been around blog land that long but I've never seen a quilt like this. I've been trying to find a project to make with solids and this one just caught my attention as fast as a "sale" sign.

At the moment I'm walking around the house taking my hexi project from room to room in a kitchen bowl. It's not very inspiring. Until that is... I found this...

Now I've got my head down trying to finish this little project to make my bigger project more fun to carry around. I wish I could explain the logic in this but there really isn't any. What can I say I've got the attention span of a fly when it comes to sewing projects. (Insert cheeky grin here) 
In saying that I finally finished my lollipops gone triangles quilt. I'm about to baste my Ruby quilt and my Farmers wife quilt along has grown to 14 blocks. I'll be doing a WIP post hopefully tomorrow to show you. 


P.S. Don't forget my GIVE AWAY is still in progress. The link is in my sidebar or just head over HERE

  3. I love that quilt too, it's a nice spin on a grandmothers flower garden.

    Solids are great too.
