Making hexagons

You may have noticed lately that I have been a bit quiet with my quilting. There is a reason for that ….. I have been making hexagons. Since I joined The Great Hexagon Quilt-Along blog, I just seem to be obsessed with making more and more each day and they really are addictive.
Here is ¼ of my queen size quilt..... well, once these two sections are sewn together, it will be. The look is cottagey (is that a word?) and that is exactly what I was aiming for with this quilt. My garden is growing day by day and I’m loving it.

Have a great day!

It looks wonderful, good for you! I'm making my GFG the old-fashioned way by hand-piecing, not the English paper piecing method, and I'm making very slow progress because I don't work on it very often.

Oh my gosh...its so pretty! Are you doing all that by hand? I have got to share your blog with a friend of mine (a no blogger) that is also making a hexagon quilt.

Oh Rose Marie - this is a real treat. How lovely. Are you machine or hand piecing?

I'm head over heels in love with this - I love hexagons!!!
