What materials did you use? All cotton fabrics and scraps. A true WIP started several years ago. I have the Pieced Hexie Book and as soon as I assemble this quilt, I'm going to make a pieced hexie quilt.

What are you most proud of? Actually sticking to this project and not hiding it away forever! Very time consuming but also relaxing to sit and stitch as time permits. Maybe that is why it is progressing to completion. It is simple and not very creative but my next one will be a pieced Hexie for sure!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't stress with color choices, just use anything and everything in a broad range of colors. Not too matchy.

This is gorgeous. Reminds me of the quilts my great grandmother made.

Great color ideas. I have finished four flowers and can't wait to make one this beautiful.

My king size bed hexi hand pieced quilt is nearly finished - thoughts on quilting this top to the batting and back layers? I am open to either hand or machine though I'm not great at free motion quilting (ok at straight lines).

What a wonderful quilt. It feels good looking at it.
