    Default Sashed Half Hexie

    Well, I finally finished this. Anything that could go wrong did so it took me too long to make. I have to say I'm not fond of the fact that there is a lot of waste with this quilt; however, I'm taking the extra pieces and making a tote bag - so - I guess it isn't waste after all. I just had the devil of a time with this one and I'm glad it's finally done and I can move on to other things.

    Because I'm a straight line quilter this was a bit unusual for me. I just shadowed the outline of whatever was left of each half hexie. This was a lot of twisting and turning to get it done - but - HALLELUJAH - it's done.

    I don't know what is happening with the pictures. I tried to delete one of them and wasn't able too. It's indicating attached thumbnails and, apparently, I don't know how to get rid of it. LOL

    I wish I'd known you were making this. One thing I did, because I hated the 'waste', I started sewing the half hexies together in longer strips than what Jenny did. When the strip was long enough to get at least 2 blocks, I'd cut them off. Then I would keep adding the hexies to the other end. There was very little waste doing it that way.

    Even though it gave you a hard time, the end result is beautiful. Give yourself a big pat on the back for finishing. I love the quilting too.

    It is beautiful. I also don't like patterns that have lots of waste. As Katrina suggested, I would do it that way as well.

    Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

    Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.
