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 2010… twice. 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.
