Half My Heart

No progress at all this week on the back for my Phoenix quilt, but I did finish making the lazy hexagons and I let my older daughter lay them out for me.  I always second-guess myself when I try to do a "random but not clumped" layout but for some reason when I let her do it, I'm always happy to just use whatever she comes up with.

Here's her layout.  There are 2 of each fabric, so this will be an I Spy quilt and a matching game at the same time.  (These photos don't look so dark on my iPad.... strange....)

I've got a little more than half of them stitched together, just 3 more columns to go.

I bought the fabric this will be appliqued onto.  It will be bigger in width than length if I keep the heart upright like this, so I think I'll add my younger daughter's name underneath it, using the same "ragged edge underneath applique" style (or whatever it's called) from my Angels with Flashlights quilt.

  1. Hexies!! Oh for more time. I'm planning on having a hexie fest when we go to France this summer, I can take fabric and paper with me and that sorts out my balmy French evenings! (Rock n' roll!)

  2. Your daughter has a good eye for laying out the hexies!

  3. I've made these before when I did a "Grandma's Garden" quilt...I know the challenges and this is just stunning! My eye went right to the ladybug fabric hexi, XOXO
