I’ve been making slow and steady progress on my diamond hex quilt. You can find the pattern here for $1
. Since its hand sewing english paper piecing I work on it most evenings, stitching a hexagon or two a night while my husband paints and we watch tv and movies together. I’m up to 6 rows of 5 hexagons, but I’d like to finish somewhere around 8 rows (maybe 8×7) still trying to decide on that as I go. I am using all Cotton & Steel fabrics
for the hexagons themselves, and then any low volume fabrics from my stash for my diamonds. I love the colors of the Cotton & Steel and they all really go so nicely together. I can’t tell you how excited I am about their Halloween collection
coming out later this year! I have also run out of blank wall space for tacking quilts up as I work on them. I’m still researching the best way to make a quilt wall & what materials to use when you do not have wall space. I’ll let you know whatever I decide on, but would love to hear from any quilters on the subject.
