Sew Close…

hexie dragon quilt layout

Yep, I’m close… I’ve been arranging and re-arranging the brown hexagons for this dragon quilt for about a month now ~ no lie.  I am SO ready to start sewing!!  It’s close… but not quite:

The area that’s bothering me the most is at the bottom.  I have two fabrics that make “hills” because they contrast with every other color in the palate.  I’m still not happy with how it looks… but like I said it’s close!

My favorite part is the mouth area… and the breath.   So the goal is to finish up this layout this weekend so I can start stitching them together on Monday.

  1. Gail, I discovered your blog though a quilting friend. can i say your work BLOWS me away? Your dragon quilt is simply gorgeous and I am in lurve with your squiddy quilt too.

    Your focus is a testament to your addiction, and let me tell you this addiction is an awesome one. Thank you so much for inspiring me to get back on the hexie wagon. I was hit pretty bad last year but it has fallen to the wayside. Maybe what I need to do is have a solid plan and not some amorphous idea that I am going to make a hexagon quilt when I get around to it.

  2. Super big thanks to Craft Gossip for reposting this! All these new comments make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside… AND totally motivated to get my butt in gear for some stitching!

  3. Thanks Paula and Linda Beth! I've decided to diss the reddish hexies altogether. I made more of the batik ones and they look a lot better. Thanks for the input!

  4. This is coming along amazingly, though I totally understand getting caught up in the details before putting it all together. One question/suggestion… on the back hill (the more red-brown) have you tried using the darker hexies toward the base, and having the more contrast on the peak?
