A Hexi Garden Quilt
While I was at the Festival of Quilts yesterday, Linda and I came across an elderly lady called Muriel Dick, who was spreading out her Hexi WIP to display to a friend. Of course it immediately attracted a lot of attention and questions. She has been working on this since 2003. It appears to use approximately 1" hexis, the templates have been hand cut, none of these modern pre cut ones I use. She is still working out how to finish it off, but it sounds as though though it will involve more hexis. I love the little insects she has fussy cut and placed sporadically among the flowers. Destined to be a family heirloom for sure.
