There’s good news for Denise and Amy . . this time someone else is getting blamed . . and it’s my friend, Judy! She keeps talking about her hexie quilts and they’re beautiful and I keep going back to look at her current project, and I may have asked her a million questions. Look at her current quilt on her blog. Gorgeous! About the only thing I haven’t asked her, and the question is just on the tip of my tongue is . . “Can I have it when you’re done?” 🙂 I think I know the answer so I might as well make my own but . . I have a tendency to start things like this and not finish but I guess it doesn’t really matter if I finish it or not – so long as it keeps me occupied and out of trouble, right?
Ugly! I know! You can say it. I started this one in maybe 1983. I got so tired of looking at it that on several occasions, I made up my mind to throw it away and then I go dig it out of the trash. Who knows . . it may really be gone at this point. I don’t even know, and actually if I never run across it again, I’ll be happy.
Nicole got started making hexies when she was here and I think her top may be finished.
Then I began searching on Pinterest and came across several hexie quilts that have me wanting to start NOW! This one was apparently made in the 1930’s. I wish I could have met the maker of this quilt. I’m not copying the picture since I don’t have permission but please click on the link and check out that quilt. I’m able to get a better picture of it by clicking on this link but the first link gives more info.
The colors aren’t what I’ll be using . . if I do it at all.
Judy told me that if I get started with hexies, I can forget about knitting and since I have so much yarn around here, maybe I should forget about hexies and keep knitting! 🙂
