I've kind of lost my blogging mojo because I am so busy with so many things right now. With trunk shows, teaching, visiting, planning QALs and company I just don't seem to have much in the way of free time! But today I've carved out a few moments to share my progress on my Road 66 quilt from the book Primarily Quilts by Di Ford.
This is row 3 of my Road 66 hexagon quilt stitched together.
Even better I've now stitched the first two rows together and the lovely path made of coral diamonds is starting to emerge. The little triangles are made with a darker coral/rust and they are a subtle colour change that I think is quite effective! As you can see I've still not added the fillers along the top edge.
Now I'm on to row 4 and I can add row three to the quilt. There are five rows in total so it will go quickly.
There was a question about the size of the quilt and the hexagons. The hexagons are 1 1/4" which is slightly larger than I normally use. The hexagon portion of the quilt will measure about 58" and I believe the length is around 68". To it will be added two borders and they will bring it up to a full size quilt.
I've got ideas for some new fussy cutting tutorials so when life slows down a little I will get to them! I'm afraid however that for the next couple of weeks my posts will continue to be rather sporadic but once the holidays are over I'll be back in the saddle and will publish more regularly.
Until the next time, happy sewing!
