WIP Wednesday

Back to normal everyday life after my trip to the UK. It was lovely to see the folks and meet my new(ish) nephew. I admit it was also lovely to have some time away from the little ones! Anyway, I thought as it was Wednesday I would show you the progress I have made on my hexies. Here are the four completed panels.



I ordered some Kona Purple from Cindy at Fluffy Sheep Quilting last week (absolutely brilliant service, fabric was here in 2 days!!) and am now making a shed load of purple hexies to encase the pattern panels. Now this could take a bit of a while because I figure I need at least 300 of them. Mind you it is amazing how many I can make whilst getting my two year old to sleep!

Linking up to Freshly Pieced WIP Wednesday.

  1. I love your hexies - I'm looking forward to seeing them with the purple! Wish I'd thought of patchwork while trying to get 2 year olds to sleep - you have my sympathy:-)

  12. Gosh you have been busy, and it sounds like you will be even busier soon. 300 hexies - you have my admiration, you certainly have more patience than I do!

  13. Takes me back to when I was at school, though I never managed to put that many together. We use to make pincushions, the 7 hexie 'flower', with a backing and some stuffing - those were the days!!!
