The next step is to add a wide turquoise border but I haven't ordered the fabric. Maybe I'll do that today!
The inspiration for Lozagons was an antique quilt on Lorraine's blog. You can see the original and several other hexagon quilts here.

I have another hexagon project it mind and one of my inspirations is this fabric from Moda. It is an old print and the collection is Dominique II and the colour is paprika! I just love these little birdies!
I also plan to use some of the ideas and techniques from my quilt Stars in the Loft.
Some of the design ideas for my new quilt are drawn from an antique quilt which I will share in another post. If my plan works out it will be a large quilt made of 1" hexagons and I plan to call it Birds in the Loft! The first step is to start sketching on a design sheet and then pull out my scraps to see what I can use! I'll keep you posted on my progress.
I will be posting a template for 1 1/4" hexagons but am having difficulty getting it to scan accurately. When I've got it figured out I'll let you know!
Until I post again, happy sewing!
Gorgeous quilt--I like the darker turquoise in the middle...hugs, JulieroseReplyDelete
I love this quilt -- and your blog. Been following for a while now and I'm so glad I found you!ReplyDelete
Beautiful quilt top! Are you going to hand quilt it?ReplyDelete
You did a great job recreating the antique and I just love the colors!ReplyDelete
Lovely quilt ! You are so quick with sewing!ReplyDelete
Have a nice day!
Your Lozagons came out beautifully! It's nice to see something that is still hexagons, but different from most of the others out there. Well done!ReplyDelete
Your Lozagons quilt is so gorgeous - I love that shade of blue/aqua you're using. And the new quilt sounds so exciting! Please link to WIPs Be Gone so readers can start to follow you as this new quilt develops. Love that color - paprikaReplyDelete
Oh my! Love that quilt - you're right, it's so cheery!!! The turquoise background is so rich and the different shades in there give it more interest :)ReplyDelete
I just love that quilt. Aqua is my favorite color so I adore that background!ReplyDelete
Fabulous quilt Karen! Can you give me a little of your punch of sewing????lolReplyDelete
What a beautiful quilt. Love the turquoise background - 3/4” hexagons I just shudder to think of it.ReplyDelete
Lozagons looks great!! I have about 5 yards of that Moda print, too -- not sure why I bought it twice? Keep it in mind if you find yourself running short?!?!ReplyDelete
Lozagons is so pretty. Your quilts to me lol are feats of fascinating, almost engineering! I hope you use them and have them snuggled round you from time to time?ReplyDelete
Wow. That is breathtaking!! Great job of recreating this lovely quilt top. That background just really sings against the other fabrics. I was not so sure about that color when you started, but now I see how it really works. I have seen a lot with red backgrounds that really draws your eye in on eBay lately!! Another project on the horizon with that gorgeous fabric?? This is like watching a to be continued tv show---what will happen next?? Stayed tuned for the next project!!ReplyDelete
Lozagons is so beautiful--that shade of turquoise really sets off the rosettes!ReplyDelete
Beautiful quilt,I love it!ReplyDelete
Gorgeous..As soon as the grandbabies are born, April, I will be doing this. in much smaller scale.. lolReplyDelete
Your lozagons is gorgeous! I still can't believe how fast you pump out these beautiful and intricate quilts. Maybe you aren't juggling 50,000 hexie projects like I am. LOL.ReplyDelete
