FIRST VISIT TO HEXAGONIA


Here is my very first hexagon piece; all hand done (except for sewing binding and borders on of course). DH asked that I hang it in our living room as he really likes it ! 
 It doesn't even have a name-- way back in the 1980's that I made this one. You can see where I picked it up a few years ago and had run out of that lovely pink for the pathways--I still like it!  ;--)))
 I had a kit that I used to take to a local lovely historic park overlooking the ocean and DH and I would sit..... and I would sew.... and he would watch the shipping with his binoculars under the trees.  Lovely memories --perhaps I should call it "Sea Flowers" and make a label....

Anyhoo..here is how my  current piece-- Monet's City is coming along:


I have all the center rows put together, but I would like to expand this piece by adding rosettes around it.  I will have to figure out a configuration that will fit--perhaps half-rings??
Anyone have any suggestions for me...???

And here is my little kit--right now being used for basting the French writing and water hexies that I have ironed (yesterday).  I will need to cut some more I am sure (you GO!BABY! lol).


(I got that little labeler for my Birthday this year from DH..) .Sooo, I have been quite busy on this one...Come and visit to see what else I am working on at my blog.  

I am truly happy to be a part of your group where I am seeing absolutely stunning hexagon quilts....hugs, Julierose, La Blageuse

Love your hexie quilt ... and that your hubby wants it hanging. I hope that one day I'll have my first hexie quilt hanging (it's still in progress - it's my road trip project).

A really delightful quilt, with its own provenance where it rested till you came back to it : )
