Hexies for Handwork

I like to keep my hands busy while watching television at night. I just bought a lovely new crochet pattern and REALLY want to jump into that project but remembered that one of my goals for the new year is to finish what I started. So...out came the hexie quilt. From 2007!

I had trouble deciding on a border back in September of 2014. I tried two or three different options and had to rip it out every time because I hated it. Now I'm going to pull the trigger, decide on a border and go for it. Hoping to have it done before its 9 year anniversary in June 2016.
Hexies in the morning sun Doesn't it look really pretty in the morning sun?


  1. Beautiful! My goal is to finish a few UFO's myself. Some of them I have lost interest in so just need to finish and donate somewhere.

  2. I live how you take old traditional patterns and POP them with your bright fabrics. Please post a photo when you finish this top. We miss you at BPQ! Brenda

  3. Oops, that's LOVE not LIVE.

  4. It's lovely!! I have a bunch of hexies that have yet to be joined into anything... My goal this year is to finish things too!!
