Hexing Along....

I have three hexy projects on the go at the moment.

Furthest along is the Kaleidoscope Hexagon quilt, which I am still quilting but there is not much left to do.  I think if I quilt it in the evenings I may even finish it soon...

Second is the Hexalong.  Lynne keeps posting lovely blocks for us to try but I  have not got down to actually doing them......yet!  I think this weekend may be the time to catch up.


I am also wanting to delve deeper into Marti Michell's book Six is for Hexagons and I have found some other hexy blocks in my second hand books by Jan Halgrimson.     I will have to redraft these to make them the right size for this project however and that should test out my skills...


Here are a couple I would like to try...











For now, here are the new blocks I have done...









And all together so far...







My third project is the bright Kaleidoscope Hexagon quilt!  I have 46 blocks as two have gone into the hexalong quilt.  But with what I have left I thought I could make a nice comfy lap quilt and an easy finish using the machine to sew these blocks by Gayle Brindley's point to point method.  




This is my progress so far.  Not much I know but I should get all blocks in rows soon and then I will have the trickier bit of sewing rows together....




I have some spare tumblers in a drawer somewhere so when I have sewn these blocks together it will not take much time to make the 3 more I need to make a 7x7  block quilt.  Then I will have 49 centre circles to sew on as I haven't decided whether it should be all one fabric or different ones??


It would be good to get this extra UFO top finished.
