Sharing my design walls.......

My friend who lives a couple blocks from me missed the meeting at my house a couple weeks ago so she came over yesterday with her hexagons that have been cut on an Accuquilt studio cutter.  They are about 5" across I think.  I didn't measure them.  She also loves Kaffe Fassett fabric like I do so she got to see my whole collection.  It was so much fun to talk to someone who also knows the names of most of the prints like I do.
Already at 8 a.m. lot of questions about sewing the hexagons.  They aren't mine, they are my friend's.  They can be machine sewn with care.
While she was here I finished unpicking seams on all of the loops that I had sewn for the green Trip Around the World.  Last night I sewed the last strata, pressed it and sewed the last seam to make it into a tube.


Then I sliced it while I watched the 10 o'clock news.







Now I can unpick the last 15 strips and finish sewing the quilt top together.

I like how she has a "flower" just suddenly appear in this arrangement of hexes. I'm also anxious to see this latest TATW in real light.

Those colours are lovely - not quite sure what you have done - but its intriguing.

Love the hexagons on your wall! Even as it is, it is a joyful picture. Do you machine-piece these hexagons? I used to think this is a hand-sewing pattern...

Pat said...

I would also like to know if you can machine stitch the hexagons. I love how they are displayed. I have a hexigon quilt in the making for years but not happy with the arrangement so I stopped working on it and mine is all hand sewn.

Yes, hexagons bewilder me too!
I love the colors in the strata, that will be beautiful! (as usual!)

Cathi said...

For a second I thought you were piecing hexagons!
I too can't wait to see the green quilt -- green is so appealing right now!

I am also curious as to how those hexies are going to be sewn together. Your TAW is coming along nicely. Can't wait to see it completed.

I wish I lived that close and could attend your meetings! In case I haven't mentioned it before, I love, love, love your Trip Around the World, especially the peacock fabric!

Ditto for me -living closer and the Trip around the world.

It must be wonderful to have a friend with the same love for KF fabrics!!! Her hexies look great. That is going to be quite the job sewing those together.

Cindy said...

Love those hexies! I love KF fabrics too and am lucky to have a LQS that carries his fabrics. I don't have too many in my stash currently. I aim to change that a little at the end of the week as the shop is having a good sale!

Hexagons remind me of looking through a kaleidoscope and seeing such a pretty picture. So nice.

Hadn't really thought about setting hexies together like that, hmmmmmm. I like it.

Hi...I'm the hexagon lady, Sue. Wanda was so helpful yesterday...I had a blast looking at her wonderful KF projects and chatting. Anyway, many of you are asking about the piecing of these. I have an idea on how to piece them (sewing machine), but haven't tried yet. Thanks for all the nice comments.

Hi Wanda,
Love those green/teal strip sets. It would be fun treat to see a live trunk show of your special quilts.

I'm not motivated to delve into hexagons (yet) but your friend's hexes are sure pretty.

p.s. we got about 6 inches out of that snow/ice mix on Sunday. Horrible to drive in (the ruts in the roads finally melted this afternoon).

I likey likey likey your friend's hexagons. Not just because they are Kaffe Fasset fabrics, but I also like the jumbled look with the random flowers popping up.
