HeLP for Hexie-aholics!

Hello to all my fellow hexiologists and welcome to another Hexie Linky Party!!!

As you probably already know and are bored to tears with, I have been focusing on my Twisted Hexies. Last week I finally laid out the large rosettes on my bed to get an idea of how many more I'll need to make.


If I want this much of a hangover on both sides I will need 10 more large rosettes plus smaller ones to square it up. It's a lot more than I expected. The fireman quilt that resides on my bed has a nice overhang when the bed is made but I do wish it was a bit bigger when I'm under the covers :) so I might as well do the long overhang on this one.


My original plan had been to use this gorgeous batik for borders but I think the quilt is just too busy. I'll probably use this batik on the back and finish the front with a simple black binding.

Sew...What have you been working on? Something old? Something new? I do hope you'll share. Just remember to link to the actual post and not you blog in general.

Wonderful--that quilt is looking so nice! That is a beautiful batik--but I can see how it would compete with the rosettes. Good call to put it on the back. Then you can still enjoy it, but without the fighting. : )

Oh WOW! I love that even more now that I see it on the bed. I didn't realize they were so big. That is going to be a fabulous quilt.

Oh...and I agree about using that batik for the back.
