Okay - Maureen's comment on the last post persuaded me - here is my hexagon sofa throw I mentioned stitching some of last night.
I started this between Christmas and New Year last December 2005. The hexagons are all 1.5inches point to point.
My lounge is decorated in aqua, cream and sand - hence the colour scheme - although it'll have to be washable to cope in those colours.
As you can see from the bottom left hand corner I have just a few beige pieces to put in. Then I shall do a turquoise round in the same as the outermost hexagon in the centre and fill in all the half pieces in that same fabric to make the edges even.
As it's all handstitched over papers it will have to be very heavily quilted so there's no strain whatsoever on those seams - this won't be a problem - yet again I'll just stitch at random all over as the fancy takes me but with the stitching no more than half to one inch apart at any point. Then I'll probably bind it in cream - we'll see.
I'd like to get this one finished for our quilt show also at the beginning of August but it depends on how quickly I can finish the piecing in and amongst everything else :o)
It's actually pleasantly surprised me looking at it in a photo - you spend so long at very close quarters to things when you're working on them that you don't get the overall effect. I really like it and will be quite sad once it's finished.
