The letter H and blue hexies

This morning I thought what a good day to take my blue hexagon quilt
outside and get a photograph, life got in the way and its's 
only now, at almost 4.00pm and watching the sky darken ready for rain,
that I have actually been outside. The only photo I could take was of
the quilt draped quickly over the trellis, the wind had started to
blow so that didn't help.

 I had more success with blocks for the H quilt yesterday

These blocks go together so quickly 

this is the backing for the quilt, a good buy on sale from a site in the USA,
should be a good one for a soon to be teenage boy.

Now on to making a decision of which of the six quilt tops waiting
to be quilted will be the first to be basted!

Hope you're enjoying the week.


  1. Beautiful, Maureen - you must be very happy with the quilt! YOu look like you are getting into a real rhythm with your H blocks :-)

  2. What interesting H blocks. I recognized several of these background fabrics from my own stash. What fun! But I LOVE your H fabrics and don't have any of them. Your teenager will enjoy them.

  3. Gorgeous hexie quilt and your "H" blocks are really pretty. Nice color combos..hugs, Julierose

  4. Your blue hexagon quilt is absolutely gorgeous.

    I see you have cut into your new Kaffe fabrics for the H blocks. I need to cut some of mine too for my current project.

  5. Ahaha, I have the same problems when taking pictures of my quilts outside! This blue quilt of yours is gorgeous!

  6. Love your hexi quilt... such a gorgeous rich colour combo!

  7. I love the quilt and super blocks-you have been busy!!

  8. Those blues in the first quilt are spectacular!

    Love your H's - such wonderful fabrics.
