This weekends work in progress

This weekend has just flown by, and these are the reasons why....

I spent Saturday morning at the studio, finishing up a customer quilt binding, and taking in another customers quilt.  

On leaving my studio, I picked up my accuquilt GO die cutting machine and a die I treated myself to this week (9" hexagon) and a bundle of fat quarters that I have been wondering what to make with for a few months now..

Honestly you would not believe how quickly this comes together, even with the dreaded "Y-Seams"  I now have a piece about 45x56 inches....  now the question is how much larger will I make it...  I am going to see how big I need it to cover my sofa at my studio, as it will make a great sample at this size...  think it may need to be a bit longer yet though...  I like to make the samples at least single bed size.

I do miss my design wall though here at home...  These fabrics are gorgeous they are Moda Gypsy girl fabrics....  I used less than half of a 34 fat quarter bundle so far (66 hexagons so far...)  Not sure if I want to use the rest up on this project yet though...  

Don't you just love how those Y seams twist around, and form their own little hexagon patch on the back....

I even managed to quickly quilt my hexagon quilt with an allover "Wandering spirals mini" pantograph, as I knew nothing much was going to show up on those fabrics....  I was right too, I used a pale grey thread to blend and also match the backing fabric I used too.  Once I get the binding on those hexagon shapes which I intend to keep, I will share some better photographs in better lighting.....
