Hexagon Update

I am closing in on my hexagon project started over here. This has been a challenge that I started with machine quilting that I was determined to conquer.

This is also one of my 2012 Finish-a-Long projects.

I must admit that I decided that I would finish up the piecing by hand. For two reasons, one; the frustration of machine piecing was not worth the effort especially with smaller pieces and two; I wanted a hand project to work on during lunch breaks. I generally work through lunch and I knew if I had sewing to do, when possible I would be more inclined to take a break from my work.

Hexagon stats:

Hexagon size: 2 1/2 inches

Number of hexagons: 91

Finished size: 21×18

I wasn’t sure how to quilt it and I finally decided to outline each hexagon. Simple but time-consuming for such a small quilt.

Enjoy the journey, Jackie
