Very, very slow progress

Gee! The last time I posted a photo of this quilt was June 2009!
The first time was June 2007!
She's definitely a golden oldie.
Maybe I'll complete her this year, now that she's out in the open in her own little box.

  2. I love this WIP of yours. I love hexies and the granmother's flower garden pattern, but I love the modern twist of your colours. Glad to see your new system is working for you.

  7. Hi, I am new to your blog but just had to let you know that my grandmother and mum started 2 quilts in this style for my sister and I before my grandma passed away in 1990. They are still works in progress. My sister and I are now learning to stitch and working on consistency of stitch quality so we can help my mum finish them. Some WIPs take so much longer than others. Don't be to hard on yourself.

  8. That's a LOT of work! It's beautiful. I'd love to start one, but I watch how long others are taking and it scares me! ;-)

  10. Looks like Mardi Gras! Beautiful. Ok Anina, today I'm buying plastic containers to organize some of my projects too. Getting the piles of UFO's off my cutting table and stuffed into cupboards would be nice.

  11. Ahhh.... so pretty and bright and refreshing! But now I'm feeling guilty about my GFG, sitting in its box. I keep telling myself, "After Jane..." :)

  12. You've inspired me to keep going with mine which has been going for just about the same time. I'm freaking out about the edges though, not quite sure how to finish it off.

    Cheers

  13. I have one I started in 2002 that is at the exact stage yous is. Have you decided on the final shape? Leave as is or add to make square? That is what is holdin me up. Yours is very pretty!

  14. This is so beautiful. I am afraid to show my daughter this one because I think she will invariably say she wants one. And hexagons are a little more fussy. I so love the colors you chose.

  15. It's beautiful! I have a hexie quilt that my great-great grandmother made. I would love to make one as she did, but am not brave enough yet. I have enough UFO's without starting another one!!

  17. OK, now you've done it, made me feel guilty. I need to get out mine...the one I started making 30 years ago, finished the top 3 years ago and have yet to make into a quilt I can use. My inspiration was the one my Mom & Grandmother made over the course of about 12 years, finished when Mom was a teen in the 40's.

  20. Thanks for the inspiration to get back to mine too. I have about 9 flowers completed. Will it be square or scalloped on the edges when done?
