Some hexagon stars.....


Sew, I haven't blogged in over a week.
I pinched my sciatic nerve in my lower back, and I've been kind of taking it easy.
I did work on my hexagon star quilt last week.
I have 9 rows of 17 stars sewn together.
This quilt top is all sewn by hand.

It is really long, and it's hard to take pictures of it.
It's the size of a twin quilt now.
But, it's going to be a queen size whenever I get it all done.
This quilt has every different style of fabric.
It's like a story quilt about all the different fabrics that I have purchased since I started quilting.
I really love it.

I hope you like it too.

Hugs

I just love the quilt! It's so beautiful and so much hard work is going in it! I can't wait to see it finished! I hope you get to feeling better soon!

I do love it! I've been doing lots of quilts lately that have man different fabrics in them - there's just something about being able to touch all those fabrics and actually be using them, and not just "petting" them!!!

(We sound like a perverted bunch, don't we??)

I like that you are hand piecing, too!

Wow! That is one gorgeous quilt. So nice to have some handwork for when you're laid up - hope you're feeling better soon.

Is this masterpiece going to be hand quilted, too?

I was just thinking of you today and realizing that it had been awhile since I "heard" from you. I almost emailed Michele to see if you were ok. I am sorry to learn that you are not ok! I hope your nerve problem gives you some relief soon. You have made so much progress on your quilt! It's amazing!

What a beautiful quilt. I love doing hexagons, it is a great project to do in your lap while you recover and a great feeling to see it evolve.

'I'm taking it easy....I made 9 rows and 17 stars....and the top is all by hand'
Hahaha. I'm guessing someone is an over-achiever at heart! :)

Love this piece. Reminds me of Cathedral window quilting, but friendlier.I need to try my hand at quilting again some time. It's been a while. I see work like this and get all dreamy about calico. *sigh*
