My Hexie challenge!
April 30, 2018
Have you ever done a challenge? I have, not too often, but every once in a while.
A few years ago (ok, maybe MORE than a few!) I gave myself a challenge. It was the best kind of challenge--one with no deadline. Those of you who have followed my journey for awhile may know the challenge I am referring to...
I challenged myself to make a hexie charm quilt. I wanted to see how big I could make it without repeating a fabric. It challenged my organization skills, (have I included this fabric already?) and my OCD of not being able to have UFO's lying around my studio.
Well, the other day at baseball, I realized the challenge was over! Here is the quilt...
and here are the two hexies that ended the challenge...
I basted it the other day at my Mom's house--now to quilt it. I think a meandering pattern will do. This quilt will probably end up in the living room as a "cuddle" quilt for the boys. Don't need anything too fancy for that!
What about you? have you given yourself a challenge quilt before? I highly recommend it! Head over to my FB page and leave a post with a pic or make a comment on the blog with a link to a pic! We would love the inspiration!
