Hello Everyone,

I thought you might like to see my progress on my hexagons! My hand piecing is going slow as of late. Unfortunately, other things are getting in the way of me actually sitting down to relax. But since the last time I have posted this, I think I have managed two more new GFG blocks.



They really do look quite nice. I do enjoy the hand piecing. I just wish I had more time these days.


You can see the multitude of colors that I have. I love using the 1930s fabrics. I think it will make the quilt feel "old fashioned". My stash has no shortage of these either.


So my system for doing these is totally scrappy. But I like it to be a controlled scrappy. I am trying to keep an even amount of each color when making these blocks. Right now I have six different color categories green, orange, yellow, pink, blue, and purple. These are definitely the softer shades of the 1930s prints. No reds will go into this quilt. The look I am going for is more "feminine".


This is the way that I usually keep them, in a stack with their own color grouping. I find that it helps me to keep track of which color I should do next. The color groupings are done by using the outer ring as the primary color.

Right now I have 27 blocks made. By my calculation, I need a total of 96. So I have a long way to go. They will all have white hexagons separating them. Very traditional. That is what I like. So, having no illusions, this quilt will take me some time to complete.

Until Next Time...
