It worked, it worked!!

My hexagon idea from the other day turned out just as I'd hoped :) Want to see pictures of what I am making (over the next 5 years - these babies take a while!)


It's going to be a hexipuff quilt! I am enthralled with all the knitted hexipuff quilts I have seen all over the internet but as a) I can't do anything with yarn and b) have no intention of trying, I decided to make one out of fabric!


These are small hence the 5 years I think it will take! It's also going to be a pick up/put down quilt which means I will only continue with it when I have bits of time. Maybe I should be aiming for 10 years :D Do let me know what you think!

Fab idea - I'm in the midst of knitting a hexipuff quilt - done about 150 so far and am making a handpieced traditional hexagon quilt so will watch your progress with interest. Good luck with it!

Does it have to take 5 years? Can't you just get a wiggle on and get on with it? Cos I think its going to be fab and I can't wait that long to see how it turns out!

Is it going to be big enough for you to roll around on? That would be so much fun. I had never heard of hexipuffs until I read this, but I am instantly excited by the idea. Get sewing and stuffing, woman! (ps Have you tried sewing any hexipuffs together yet?)

That's going to be gorgeous!!!

I haven't sewn any together yet so I'm hoping it still works :)

Am liking the idea - somewhere between a patchwork throw and an eiderdown :) Here's hoping it doesn't take 10 years though.

What a great idea! I've been rather struck with all the knitted hexiepuffs, but it didn't even occur to me to attempt a sewn one. Can't wait to see how this one develops.

Looks interesting. I made a "puffy" pram quilt for my little ones 30 years ago but using 5 inch squares. So-every thing comes round again. It will look and feel lovely so get cracking!!!!
