dragon hexie close up

Finally…

I have some photos to share!  Here’s my caveat: these are home photos… when the sun actually makes an appearance here in Portland, I’ll get outside and get some decent pics.  I just didn’t want to make you wait much longer 😉

Details:  4,132 1/2″ hand-pieced hexies in this quilt.  Stitched from Oct. 2011 to Feb. 2013.  Partially free-motion-quilted on my domestic Singer sewing machine, partially by hand using french knots.

Here’s a couple photos of the back too:

And one last photo of me and my quilt at the PMQG meeting on Thursday:

That meeting was really fun!  We actually did a hexie demo and everyone got to try their hand at them… it was great, and I think we may have a few more hexie addicts soon 😉  There were a lot of amazing quilts shown (as usual!).  That group is just amazing when it comes to support and motivation ~ I love my guild!

    I love hexies!! Love them. Any hand work is my friend, but hexies are perfection. I would love to learn how you made the picture design. I must have joined after that happened. It is quite simply amazing!!

    Thanks everyone! Judy ~ yes, I do intend to show it at Quilt Expo this fall, as well as a few other shows. The hard part about entering it into a show is picking a category for it.
