Top sewn!..............

The half hexagon top is sewn together and top and bottom trimmed straight.  It is 58" x 79".  The bottom right corner is kind of dark and I considered taking out a couple pieces and replace them but then I decided not to since this will just be in my share pile of quilts and a non quilter will probably get it.  I wanted to make one to see how many pieces it would take to make a decent size couch quilt.  There are 208 pieces half dark and half light, 104 of each.  Now if I decide to make another one with a different collection of fabrics I know how many to cut.  I shared the inspiration quilt and the die used to cut the pieces here.
I designed another colorwash yesterday.  It has a limited number of orange and brown pieces in it this time.  I could add 6 more rows across the bottom and then it would have more green, brown and orange.




I decided to rotate the photo to see if I liked it better.












Then I rotated it the other way.  I'll have to think about this one for a few days.

Today is my first visit with my pacemaker surgeon so I hope I get some questions answered.

I love the glow best in the last photo. It is just super. The hexagon quilt is wonderful and it would great bigger. Looking at all those colors makes me smile on this cold, cold morning.

My half hexagon die arrived yesterday afternoon - I'm hoping to get started cutting pieces next week.

I too hope you have a good check up and ALL the answers to your questions. Hexagon piece is wonderful and another color wash that takes my breath away. So fascinating to see how it changes as you turn it. Looking forward to your color wash tutorial, next year.

I hope you have a great checkup! On the colorwash quilt I love the way that the red section almost starts a swirl effect. Very cool.
