I Like Candy!

I first posted about wanting to start a Candied Hexagon quilt in June 2009 (seriously?!? has it really been that long?!?) Then, my friend Lorraine in Oz sent me the pattern… and Linda lent me the set of templates to make my cutting easier. I posted a little on my progress in July 2010twice. And I’ve continued to work on it during road trips. To date: 44 blocks complete.Of course, about half of those are the fussy cut, one-piece hexagons:But that’s okay, 44 blocks done. That is most definitely a good thing. Things I’ve learned while working on this quilt… a) the importance of precise cutting and marking of seam allowances; b) that I really like to hand-piece! And c) that I LOVE the colors in these fabrics!!!My goal for this quilt is to have progress to update on the blog a little more often than every 6-8 months. ahem.

  1. It's truly gorgeous! Yes, it's those colors that make it so awesome. Oh how I wish I'd had you around when I made my own Candied Hexagons fabric selections. I'm just not pleased with them. Yours are fresh and beautiful! Keep up the great work. You don't know how happy I am to hear you like hand piecing. You're a likeminded friend indeed.

  2. I've been thinking about starting one of these for a while. I have a fabric collection started but it needs something else. I really enjoyed looking at yours. It's wonderful. Keep up the good work!

  3. Oh my, I've just found my next hand-sewing project!
    I'd forgotten about this pattern that I originally saw on your blog a little while ago. It definitely has to go onto my “start soon” list.
    Your fabric choices and fussy cutting are stupendous! The fabrics are crisp and just perfect for this Candied Hexagons quilt.

    PS–thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment re: my giveaway. For some reason your comment didn't show up in my e-mails, so I couldn't reply to you that way. This is a much better way! I get to see your scrumptious hexagons!

  4. This is by far the most gorgeous combination of my favorite colors I've ever seen! What is the name of the fabric on the 1st pic in the top left? It has a blue background with a fushia design. I loooove that color combo. It reminds me of the colors in Amy Butlers French Wallpaper in Duck Egg, which was my most beloved fabric of all time.
    You have done an amazing job, and all of your hard work is going to reap one gorgeoumous quilt! Great work chickadee!
