wip - half-hexes quilt

it is hot around here!

another day with about 30°C - kind of the perfect time to work on the half-hexes-quilt..

after lots of cutting i layed out the ca. 430 (!!!!) pieces today - great idea when it is very hot and you can´t open the patio door for a breeze because the little pieces would fly around like little birds..

and i even read something about exactly this problem some weeks ago over at Aneela from comfortstiching, who btw has a great quilt-along on half-hexes..

anyway, i managed, and this is how it goes:

i used the very pretty "hello betty"-fabric from moda. because i only had a layercake i got some more yardage of some of the designs to fill it up.
plus some other 1930´s reproduction fabrics which fit right in.

all those little patterns/designs in bright and soft colors plus some solids are just perfect for this kind of quilt: all together it feels very retro and the tiny patterns will blend right into a hexagon-look.

so this is going to be so nice (if i don´t ruin it while sewing...)

  1. Was für eine Herrausforderung! Und das bei 30°C (Ob es wirklich so heiß ist, werde ich heute mal überprüfen...) Ich bin gespannt auf den fertigen Quilt.
