I think I made these hexies a couple of years ago and I have a lot of them -- over a hundred so auditioning how I want to arrange the and how many quilts and what kind of quilts I want to make.
They could be quilts I keep, Sweet Charity or smaller Neo-natal quilts.I decided that definitely I would do one with the vertical arrangement with some fabric in between. Still have to decide how many rows and how wide to put the in-between fabrics. I am sure I will have at least a thin strip of white surrounding each column.
I found this fabric when going through my stash this summer and thought I would use it for a 4 patch posie block as there were only 4 repeats and a little extra. It looked like a good candidate to me.
These were a bunch of the blocks I have completed. They all look awfully red to me and I know I will surround them with probably a green although I don't want it to look like a Christmas quilt so we shall see. I am also thinking that maybe some with green, some with white and some with black. I have done this before and thought it gave a successful look.
These were more of the same and I am amazed that there are really no duplicates or any that are just a little off from being duplicates. That is very unusual. The repeat was 13 inches and I cut 3 inch strips and then blocks so the finished block will be 5 1/2 inches square.
I have quite a few tops accumulated now that I will have to start quilting before too long. I like to do all the quilting at the same time as it helps in the muscle memory with all the free motion quilting.
