Moving Right Along . . .

The last two hexies for the Morris Hexathon are done!  All were pieced by hand, or in a few instances, by machine. I really enjoyed delving into my repro fabrics. Thanks, Barbara, for your weekly posts and for pushing my creativity!

Do you recognize the Ann Robinson shell fabric in #25 Sussex Cottage? It's an oldie from RJR and the Shelburne Museum.

In #26 Clouds I used Windham's Dargate fabrics and a blue from Barbara's Alice's Scrapbag :)

I actually made a few extras along the way. Here they all are up on my wall.

A while ago I drafted a layout based on the official set which you can see on Barbara's Pinterest page. The main difference is that my hexies are on point.  

I experimented back in June with bird and floral fabrics and will use them in the 1st, 3rd, and 5th rings and pieced hexies in the 2nd and 4th.

I couldn't wait to get the 2nd full ring of pieced hexies in place and to begin cutting the next. 

Now I have one big hexie but am undecided as to what fabrics to use in the corners. In any case I'm moving right along . . .  

Happy Quilting!
