I’m so excited that we (mostly my husband) installed my new design wall! Soon, I’ll post a full review of the design wall itself, but I want to try out a couple more things with it to give you a better-formed opinion. In the meantime, I’m starting a new series of “What’s Up?” posts of projects-in-progress. I kind of thought three rollers might be overkill on this design wall, but they’re all three already full of quilts. For today, here’s a glimpse of the massive hexagon quilt I’ve been working on for ages.
This quilt has been languishing in a box for months. I couldn’t figure out how to start putting all the sections together without spreading it out. And quilts on the floor simply aren’t safe since the baby became mobile. Now I can see that I need to finish up the two kite blocks (in the top right and bottom left corners), so they will align with the rest of the quilt. Then I’ll start from the center and start piecing the 3″ hexies to the medallion and work my way out from there. I still have a bunch of fussy cut and pieced 3″ hexies to fill in the gaps, so I’m hoping this quilt will go together fairly quickly.
What are you working on this weekend?
