What materials did you use? Cotton fabric and thread

What are you most proud of? Redoing some of the blocks to get sufficient number to create a lap quilt. I'm also proud of a couple of designs I created. The spiral with hexis is a favorite in this quilt.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Buy enough fabric up front. I naively thought I could get through the project using a fat quarter bundle I'd bought some time ago.

PS your hexies are just fabulous

Thank you! I love the blocks - not too crazy about making hexis. I doubt I'd have the patient to do a whole quilt with them - although I might consider giving it a go using the spiral block. I really like how that one came out.

Should have typed "patience" (not patient). Although I might become one doing hexis!

the beautiful colors look so vintage! cottage vintage. I do love your hex spiral too

Why thank you silverilex! Looks like you did the same thing I did when you hit those string blocks..... used "lots of scraps"! I didn't want to cut into the fabric I'd chosen so ended up starting a 2nd quilt using scraps from Black,White & Red. I like both your fabric combos. Hope you'll do a Christmas quilt too!

Oh Jean, only seeing this now! These blocks are fabulous and I LOVE the fabrics, Yep I think the hexi block is my favourite too.... I mean your hexi block.... I really didint enjoy making the hexi block myself as it was a tad bit tedious! Cant wait to see this one quilted and finished LOVE it:)

Thank you Desna. I had the same "hexi" experience with curved piecing. Decided to skip it for this colorway. But I do love the results! Now its on to FMQ!

Very nice Jean!! I am going to draw inspiration from your projects. This reminds me of a quilt my Grandmother would have had especially the colors in it.
