I've had a busy several days so there isn't much sewing to show but I did get my Brinton Hall blocks stitched into rows and I've also made all of the filler pieces for the top, bottom, corners and sides. First I'll start with the rows.
These are the filler pieces. I've made six of the unit at the top. It will fill in the "V" in the top and bottom rows and also it will also fill out the corners as it connects to the side units of which there are four.
When joined this is what the units that fit the corners will look like.
The top and bottom rows have all of their fillers attached. The middle row is snuggled up between them to give you an idea of how it will look!
So now the rows can be stitched together and then the whole thing will be appliqued to a background fabric. So far everything has come from my stash and I've got a lovely blue that will work just fine for the background. My plan is to prepare it today so that once the rows are stitched together I will be ready for the next step!
It is a short post today. Hopefully there'll be more to share soon! Until I post again, happy sewing.
Gorgeous the hexagons for the Brinton Hall Quilt!ReplyDelete
Have a nice stitching week!
I love the way you do the mid pieces. And the colours are so perfect. Looking forward to your next step.ReplyDelete
Lovely, Karen! The fabrics you are using as the large block centres are beautiful and you've got a 'well framed' look! Great progress :-)ReplyDelete
I so enjoy looking at these!ReplyDelete
The birds are just so beautiful. I still think hexies are the best shape ever! Still working on hubby about a hexagon shaped house : )ReplyDelete
This is looking so lovely, I just love those scrappy filler hexies.ReplyDelete
I think your progress is going along at a pretty fast clip! It all looks wonderful!ReplyDelete
Looks great but you do realize that your idea of "slow progress" is rapido for the rest of us!!ReplyDelete
Such pretty fabrics in your frames. You are making great progress on this & I may have to check this out this pattern again!!ReplyDelete
Oh I love this. I free to really continue now, again thanks for this lovely expression in color.ReplyDelete

It's a beauty and your progress doesn't look slow to me. It seems to be coming together quickly.ReplyDelete
Yes, to all that has been said. Karen, I can't imagine that you have time for anyghing else in your life. You have raised the bar on how fast one can actually hand sew hexagons. I wish I lived closer to attend your upcoming workshop. This parrot quilt will become another masterpiece. I love reading your posts more than anyone else's. Wow, I love this quilt too!ReplyDelete
