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
