Half Hexie EPP

Half Hexie EPP - May 2019
Half Hexie EPP – May 2019

The other day I showed a piece of the Half Hexie EPP I was working on. I have spent some time since then attaching it to the larger piece.

I often think I am in a good place with this piece, then I look at the whole thing and realize I haven’t made the progress I wanted. That was the case when I looked at this whole piece as I was photographing it. It is still too skinny. I need to make it wider.

I have been thinking I would square up the top and bottom then make it wider. Somehow it just keeps getting longer and appears to be skinnier.

Fortunately, I still need some length so the work will not go to waste and I won’t have to rip it out.

As an aside, I saw an exact match to this quilt (except for the fabrics) on a Kansas City Star page. They call it Whirligig. Do I like that name? Maybe.

I am kind of thrilled that the Kansas City Star has a pattern for this quilt. I’ll have to look it up and see what my copy says about the pattern.

  1. It looks like a flower explosion or flower confetti! So cheerful. I have a flower garden quilt that I’ve been working on for over ten years. These types of quilts take forever to do but they are so awesome. Enjoy the journey! 🙂

    1. Yes, I have to do that. My friend who made a similar quilt said this is slow quilting. Of course, she hasn’t seen my UFO pile nor does she know how old some of them are! 😉 I am trying to get my head around working on it slowly.
