Design Wall Monday - 4/4/11

Hexie-mania continues here at casaGrande!

I've finished the top section of theBathroomQuilt.

My plan (at the moment!) is to create 4 of these panels and fit them together to represent the diamonds from the tile floor here at work. I've decided against a layout more like the original floor because there was just too much "white space." I still think this layout will be pretty sizable for a wall hanging and I will still be replicating the tile border using seminole piecing.

This week the local PBS station is showing a series on the Civil War - I'll be at Mom & Dad's house watching it so I expect to get lots more hexies done this week.

Last night I finished the last 2 hexies in the above project and started another diamond for this other project. I do need a name for this one tho...

It's a sickness I tell you!

Nice idea with the nordic ware to do the hexies, thanks! Yours look great so far. It's amazing where inspiration comes from sometimes!

I love your hexies. I am working with them too, but mine are huge in comparison. I knew if I picked small ones it would become a UFO so mine are 1.25" across the top and 2.5" across the middle. I have been basting mine on the machine and learned a new way to stitch them so I can't see my ugly stitches on the top. Your stitches don't show at all!
