The New Hexagon Quilt.

I started this quilt about 3 years ago.  I taught it at my LQS!  Then we moved and the project ground to a halt.  My friend Ellyn from Ellyn's Place took over teaching in my stead.  Somehow we both stalled on this project.  That is, until this year.  We vowed to get it done and motivate each other in the process.  We agreed to make a block every two weeks. 

I was further behind on the project than Ellyn, so I threw in an extra block every now and then.

I have been traveling too so I had to play catch-up!

I have started sewing my rows together.  This is row one and two which are joined.  I am so thrilled at how easily these rows come together and how easy it is to join the rows.  I place them and then use a binding clip at the intersection of the two blocks to hold everything in place while I whip stitch.
I have to give Ellyn a shout-out for being such a wonderful motivator.  Her top is put together and she is at the border stage.  I would never have made it this far without being accountable to her.  

I am loving this project with all it's fussy cut loveliness.  

Thank you for visiting.



  1. When I started this quilt i found a fab border fabric and picked solids for the blocks. Ugh...i knew by the third block that it was too boring. Someday i need to restart the meantime I'll just admire yours!!!

  2. Your first two rows look great.
    Best wishes Manuela

  3. I've been enjoying your beautiful blocks on IG. The fussy cutting has created some gorgeous patterns. Wonderful progress.
