I love hexagon quilts - my mum made me one when I was little, and I loved the colours - just a swhame she used 'crimpaline' (?sp) - a type of nylon/man-made fabric, so it wasn't a good one to snuggle into Sad I remember all the cutting of the papers and fabric, and the HOURS of hand sewing, but great if you haven't got access to machine, and she used card (old birthday cards etc) now I would use much thinner paper - it'd be much easier!
Oh, how lovely to have one made by your mum! I love hexies, but never thought I'd make one! these days they sell little cardboard hexies, so that saves a LOT of time and effort. Also, there are little fabric glue sticks to help wrap the fabric around the cardboard before you sew.

Well, I now have 95 of the flowers, and I've started to sew them together, so I will update soon to show them being pieced together.

Thanks everyone for your kind and super-supportive comments! I'm officially chuffed!

Wow, thanks for all the lovely feedback! It is so great to post something on Craftster, coz you know your fellow craftheads are going to appreciate how exciting it is to create something you love. I have really loved this project, I've been drooling over hexagon quilts for years but never thought I'd have the patience for one. I've been amazed at how much fun it is. the only downside, and its a big one, is that it really wastes a LOT of fabric. Especially if you don't plan well - which I never do  Undecided But if you're thinking of trying it, I'd say go for it - and post some piccies!

wowzers that is cool.  I've got about 20 hexie "flowers" done for something - quilt/runner, not quite sure - but I have never seen this kaleidoscope method! That looks freakin awesome - wish I had known about it  Undecided
oh, wow, are you going to finish it?

Any idea how big you plan on making it? It is just 'I'll see how I go'?
Yes, exactly! I think I'll stop making them soon.

Thanks, everyone. I have been amazed at how quickly this has come together. I started it about 8 weeks ago, and only work on it in my spare time ie evenings and weekends. So it hasn't been very difficult or time-consuming. But it has been fun.  Grin
