Yesterday I suddenly took the urge to make a Christmas quilt. I have plenty to be keeping me busy (gift buying, gift making, card writing etc) but I couldn't fight the urge!
Last year I bought a bundle of Delighted by the Quilted Fish in the black Friday sales, and it has been whispering to me ever since. I persuaded myself it wasn't too insane to randomly start another quilt if I could make it quickly, so I decided to go big :)
I'm still not tired of hexagons, and this lovely quilt by Jeni at In Color Order had caught my eye a couple of weeks ago. I went with great big hexagons (each side is 7") and added some equilateral triangles so there was a big of a starry effect going on (and so I could piece it without cutting the hexagons in half and avoid y-seams) It wasn't quite big enough for my liking so I added a couple of borders. Now it measures just over 70" square, and I'm rather happy with it :)
If I can manage to get it quilted in time I'm going to give it to a special person for Christmas (who hopefully doesn't read my blog!)
Do you like it? I do :)
