    We looked at a medium gray, and several other colors before we decided on the purple. Just about everything looked great, except for the blues and teals.

    I haven't made up my mind as to the borders. We're heading down to FL to visit the grandchildren. They usually stay with DIL's grandparents but Great-Nana is having cataract surgery Thurs, so we're pinch hitting while she's recuperating.

    I guess Monday of next week, I'll be figuring that out!

    The sashing is Kona Cotton- the dark purple

    It's the Oasis Metallica Patty Cake. The colors are so soft and pretty. It looks even better in my bedroom.

    That turned out great. I love the fabric - is that a line or did you pull them together?

    started a topic Twisted half hexi

    So, I asked the question... would 2 layer cakes be enough fabric to make a queen size quilt using the twisted half hexi... the answer is yes!

    The only thing I did differently is I started with 12 pieces sewn together instead of 6. I cut 13 inches off the bottom and kept adding strips to the top. I hope that made sense.

    I ended up with 35 blocks, squared up to 13".

    DH likes the long length so there will be plenty to tuck, like a bedspread.

    I'm loving it. Now to figure out what to put on the sides, because he likes it long there, too. He's soooooo like his mother.
Working...
