This post has been sitting in my queue for a while now. Apparently blogging about a quilt is just as intimidating to me as finishing one.
And since this quilt will probably never be finished, I might as well throw these up there and move on with my life, right?
The Hex Quilt was my very first, and as I said in my teaser for The Shuckster, it showed me the possibilities of pattern and color-play in quilts. But, really, that doesn’t give weight to the many hours I spent shopping for the perfect purple fabrics, or arranging and re-arranging the color progression, or coloring sample patterns on hexagon graph paper…it became an obsession for a whole year, and this series of photos hints at that.
June 2009: While in Calgary, my craft-enabler Joce took me on a Fabric Crawl. The goal was to drink a pint of beer for every meter of fabric purchased, but it would have been impossible. (This is only one portion of the fabric haul.)
February 2012: On display at The Shuckster!
