hexed

half hex quilt
sorry for the subpar photo, but there was a baby coming!
guys, I had a deadline! partially self-imposed and partially out of my control. you know, the mother nature kind? hence the silence. I started with a month to spare, but something about piecing all those half hexagons kinda killed me. I wasn’t entirely sure how I wanted the whole quilt to look and all those rows seemed to take forever. of course, babies don’t wait for design decisions do they?

the quilt was delivered on the 15th and the baby was born on the 18th. it got there just in time! now I wish I had better photos of this one because I love it so much. I asked Illanna what the baby’s room would be like and she said “linen with pops of color”. I basically ran with it, using some hello betty in the retro colorway with essex linen in putty. the binding is from lantern bloom.

I’m still shocked I managed to surprise her after asking about the baby’s room and constantly checking on her due date. if you want to surprise someone, then just ask questions through twitter. tons of distractions there apparently 🙂

    I love this quilt. I’m starting to really love the look of linen quilts. Maybe it’s time to start thinking about having a go myself.

    Wow. This is gorgeous. It sounds like it took forever and a day to cut all of the half hexes, but it is so beautiful that it has to be worth it!
