MMSC - Week 19

Small amount of progress this week … I basted 5 diamonds.


I showed you the design sketch of my Batik Hexie Quilt (aka Grandmother's Flower Garden) two weeks ago, but it really doesn't accurately capture what happens when fabric gets involved. So I thought I'd have some fun and layout my hexies to show you what the real thing will look like.


What do you think?  Hrmm … I think I hate it. Oh dear.

Linking up with Jessica for the Monday Morning Star Count at Life Under Quilts.

  1. I tried to comment earlier but something went wrong - sorry if it went through twice. But why do you hate it? I think it's so fun and playful!

  3. Adrienne I love the diamonds you basted this week.. I think I just bought some fabric last week with the same pattern (but not the lovely mossy green color you have).. how fun I will have to double check. this week I haven't done much but prewash some new fabrics. -__-

  4. Is there a particular reason why you hate it? I think it is gorgeous!

  5. oh dear--I hope you are joking!! That is so fun and pretty!!! Although, I totally understand starting to make something and then realizing it was just not "me" and abandoning it! This is quite beautiful in my eyes! Maybe if you tuck it away for a few weeks, it will look different to you later.

  7. I think its great! Maybe you have to leave it for a couple days and come back to it - that may change your mind :)

  8. Sadly I am not joking. :( But … I'm just going to put it aside for a while and see how I feel. A few new plans are rattling around in my brain though.
