    Diamond Shaped Hexie Quilt

    I thought I would post this. I was waiting until I quilted it but alas I haven't got to that point yet. Took me months but I enjoyed every minute of it. Now I am working on another hexie quilt in black and white.

    That is very pretty and colorful. Is this all hand done? Do you put a backing and batting on?
    Retired teacher, loving it.
    Love quilting also.

    It is all hand pieced with 1" hexies. I will be putting batting and backing on it. It measures as a lap quilt.

    Gorgeous! I think it deserves to be hand quilted. Are you up for that?

    Oh my word, I LOVE it!!! I so want to make something like that. I just have such a thing for rainbow type quilts but I have never make hexies before so this seems very intimidating for me. Is there a good tutorial on how to do something like this? You have an impressive collection of fabrics there. Are those regular cottons or batiks? I've made a few rainbow quilts (one batik and one regular cotton with lots of fabric left over still) and it requires buying a lot of fabric to get the various colors and enough variety. Unfortunately, I purchased a lot of prints that had too much other color and I realized after the fact that it is better to get mostly tone on tone types. Great job.

    Very colorful and nice.
    We have all had to learn painful lessons. We are all recovering from some mistake, loss, betrayal ,abuse injustice or misfortune. All of life is a process of recovery that never ends. We each must find ways to accept and move through the pain and pick ourselves back up. For each pang of grief, desprssion, doubt or despair there is an inverse towards renewall coming to you in time. Each tragety is an announcement some good will indeed come in time.
    Be patient with yourself.
