I’ve been working on a few items that I can’t show just yet, but I CAN show my Scrappy Hexy Quilt progress. I recently watched every single episode of Downton Abbey for the first time, and it felt very fitting to do some hand-sewing at the same time.
After hours of deliberation, I settled on a subtle diagonal stripe layout. 2 rows of color and 1 row of neutrals on a diagonal repeat. Now that I took a photo, I can see that I have some ducks in the wrong row!
I’m really happy with the addition of the neutrals. The eyes now have somewhere to rest. It is a busy, busy quilt!
I think my favorite part is my hexy caddie. I love seeing all those rows of neat little hexagons. The quilt will be made up of 598 1.5″ hexys, so I still have lots to make. I’d love to see this quilt done by June, but I think that is probably a pipe dream.
Linking up with WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.
