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!
Wow, what a great quilt!
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!!
Amazing quilt! Just beautiful!
Wow, Gail, your work is so gorgeous!!!!
Greetings from Germany, Grit
It's gorgeous!!! You should be very proud!!
OhMyGoodness! This is fabulous. Do you intend to show this at quilt show this fall at the Expo Center???? I would be thrilled to see it in person. Hint, hint.
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.
