Decisions, Decisions

My Morris Hexathon quilt has reached the awkward and unwieldy stage of EPP, but the end is in sight as 24 of the hexagon blocks have been joined together, leaving only eight hexagons and the edge filler pieces to add.

This means that I need to think about a new long-term hand stitching project. I’ve narrowed it down to either the Lucy Boston Patchwork of the Crosses using Liberty lawn or Glorious Hexagons using Kaffe Fassett.

If I were to do the POTC quilt, I would make it smaller than in the book so I would have to work out how much background fabric to get but I would certainly have enough Liberty in my stash for the rest of it and I have a Sizzix die for the papers. If I were to do the Glorious Hexagons, I could make a start with the Kaffe Fassett fabrics I have and add to them as needed, but I wonder if it is time for a change from pieced hexagons.

Both these quilts have been run as Block of the Month clubs last year (and are being repeated this year), so I think  a Google search for comments and inspiration is needed – I may be gone for some time!

  1. this is coming along so beautifully Sara remember you must bring it to the next meeting. Big decisions on new projects like them both so maybe you should have a go at both no pressure!
