This is an unfinished flaunt, but a milestone nonetheless. All the hexies for my traveling Candied Hexagon quilt (from an out-of-print 2005 issue of Australian Quilters Companion, designed by Kerry Dear) are pieced... by hand, I might add. Mind you, they're not yet sewn to one another, but this is the intended layout, following the pattern diagram.I'm not sure I like it very much. But I'm hopeful that after adding the small inset pieces that fit along the edge, and a restful border, its appearance will improve.
So it's much more hand piecing, and much more traveling before there's much more progress!
In the meantime, to keep the rows in the arrangement I settled on, I needed something to separate the rows. I came across an old Quilt Art calendar that I thought to throw away, but decided to put the pages to use.
I labeled each row of hexies, layering them between calendar pages, and stacked all 11 rows in a shoebox...
...with clearly marked instructions for the next step.
So, the traveling hexies are at a rest stop for now..
