My Hexagon Quilt

Oh, how lovely to have a quieter week - must say I am fluffing about and doing a lot of time-wasting. A glorious day here again today - we are so lucky, we've had the highest April rainfall on record and the rain usually falls at night leaving us with beautiful, cool, sunny days.

Now that Step 3 of my Blueberry Crush is complete, I am concentrating on my handwork, a hexagon quilt I started many years ago. It is all English Paper Pieced and I have used antique reproduction or vintage-type fabrics.

I would love to start an applique quilt I intend doing, but I am on a mission with this one, so must keep at it. I can't sit down much during the day, so may machine piece a cot quilt at the same time.

Yes, the hexagon quilt is so pretty. I like the pieced blocks mixed in.

Yes, the huckweaving is done on a fabric specifically designed for it, probably what you called huckabuck. It is not commonly done in the US to my knowledge; in fact I'd be surprised if most folks even knew what it was. But I had fun with it way back when.
