I think I like it...


My little retro-ish hexagon project is growing ever so slowly. Every now and then I pick it up and add another hexie, only to put it aside again, I ponder whether I really like it or not. And now (finally!) I have reached the conclusion that I do indeed like it!


I like the colours, I like the fabrics, I like the smallish hexie shapes... so what is there not to like...? Even though many of the retro fabrics I am using have a large design, which not quite shows in the small pieces, I still prefer them smallish.


And now that the jury has reached its verdict (so to speak), I will keep on stitching with renewed enthusiasm. I am aiming for a quilt... maybe for the guest bed... so I do have a long way to go... or rather to stitch, that is. Wish me luck, will you...?

It's so pretty! I definitely think you should continue it and I think you're very brave to tackle such a project! I just finished my first quilt for my daughter's bed and it turned out as I wanted but it was so much work! I love reading your blog!

Mia, I think that you've now got a very good mix of calm and accent going on in your hexie project. It's got a wonderful rhythm!

As I've written before, this technique intrigues me, but I wonder if I have the patience for it. Your growing results are very inspiring.

I really love it, too! I'd thought that adding white was the way to go, but now I see that the red hexxies are just the right touch. Good for you for pressing onward. Very inspiring!
