This quilt was inspired by the gray/purple fabric that I found in my mom’s sewing room and a quilt-a-long found on Flickr. The idea is to create half hexagons and assemble them into vertical rows and placing the fabric to give the look of full hexagons. I used a free template posted in the Flickr group and a handy EZ Six ruler to cut the 6 inch pieces. After cutting, cutting and more cutting, I laid them all out on a piece of flannel next to my sewing machine for easy access and then joined the rows to form the quilt.
Because some of the fabric had a particular design, I was very careful about cutting out some of the half hexagons, which made it that more time consuming. It took me a day and a half of non-stop working and I think it will end of being a baby quilt size. But I’m happy with how it turned out and will be adding a black and white border eventually (my machine is broken). What do you think?
