This one is the hand sewing project that never ends and doesn't have a deadline. I try not to compare myself with other EPPers (english paper piecers) who can get this particularly "involved"
quilt with over 17,250 hexagons in it done in months. Some have done multiples. 🤯
This is the picture that started the love affair with this quilt and I knew that even if it took my lifetime, I wanted to do it.
My design idea has morphed during its tenure. I was going to start it as a scrappy project but was fighting my internal control mechanisms. A few years back, a friend who is also doing this quilt came with me to the fabric store where we decided together on a controlled palette for mine. It has been a journey and some unpicking and replacing of original pieces but it's firmly underway now.
This was a scrappy one I saw online which inspired me to go scrappy... until I decided not to.
As I scrolled through my photos to write this post, I realize that I've really only begun in earnest to work on it frequently during 2020 and 2021. Hmmmm. How strange to coincide during a time when the world has gone crazy and I needed something to calm the nerves. But I'm giving myself a pat on the back for how far I've come on this quilt.
Note: I'm setting this to post on January 2nd so anything could happen between now and then. 😉
So.....I hope you enjoyed following along on my slow stitching recap of my La Passion Hexagon quilt. I intend on keeping at it. After all, it deserves to be finished, and I deserve to take a bow for finishing 17,250 darn hexagons and getting it quilted. That's the goal peeps. Wish me well!
Until the next instalment!
