…is done! Yes, a bit later than the hockey season ended but it is pieced, quilted and bound! I first wrote about the hexie quilt at the beginning of my son’s hockey season here back in September of 2013. I brought the hexies with me to hockey practices, long road trips and anywhere else where a ‘wait’ was involved. Mostly though, I sewed the hexies together at night when we were all done activities for the day and what I call ‘crash time’. I love rising before the birds in the morning as it’s so much more productive a time for me but at around 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm, that’s it, I am done for the day. Sewing hexies didn’t and doesn’t require creative thought or planning so I don’t worry if I am too tired to create at that time of the day. And really, it’s almost therapeutic sitting and stitching while you can still enjoy whatever is going on around you.
I ended up with enough left over hexies to create another quilt about the same size. This one is a generous lap size quilt, measuring about 64 inches by 72 inches. Just enough to keep us nice and warm through the long winter months 🙂
Thanks so much for stoppin’ by and hope you have a fabulous weekend!
