The Last Take Your Time Tuesday

Soo... what do you think?

I'll add some half flowers on the border and then add a row of solids-scrap hexagons-solids. It will measures 63 by 82 inches then. I ran out of Kona Bone so there will be some reordering and hoping the Kona matches. It is based on a quilt by badskirtAmy.

I will be ending the linky today since there doesn't seem to be that much interest in sharing handwork in progress or not. Thanks for playing along.

So what have you been working on this week? So what have you been up to this week? Do you have some handwork to share? Link up, add the Take Your Time Tuesdays button on the sidebar to your post and be sure to visit and leave comments on each other's posts!

Have a Happy Tuesday!

  2. Kristen, it's gorgeous! Absolutely beautiful. It's fun to see a hexie quilt that has such a strong modern feel about it. I'm sorry the linky didn't take off - it was a really good idea. I haven't been able to get hand-stitching in much at all for a good month.

  3. Your quilt is so beautiful, Kristen! And I'm sorry I haven't been able to support your linky - I wanted to, but have been absolutely slammed with ministry quilt requests and so no handwork for me - except for boring bindings!! Maybe it would do better in the summer, when folks are taking their hand-sewing to the ball field and other recreational activities!

  6. Aww Kristen! I liked Take Your Time Tuesdays. Maybe in a couple of months you can try it again. Until then, us hand peeps can stick together!

  10. Sew Pretty! I found an antique Grandmother's flower garden quilt at a thrift store today. It's worn in places, but, still beautiful.

  11. Hi! I wish I'd found your blog a month and a half ago, when I started my current obsession with handsewing! Instead I find it just in time to see you ended your linky! Owell. Your quilt is beautiful. I love how the flowers pop.

  12. I'm trying to figure out your method for sewing the background/bone hexagons. It appears you are attaching 5(?) to each flower and then it works out to lay them out and sew the top together this way? Trying to wrap my brain around it!! I'm doing a grandmothers flower garden and I'm adding the background hexagons and piecing it all together at the same time. This looks simpler!
