Lovely Hexie Flowers

This is the work of Kathy Kirby.  About it she said,

"My first hexi project. Top completed while visiting my kids in Hawaii. Now I have to try to figure out how to complete it. I do plan to hand quilt it, but unsure of the batting? or not? Last thing for me will be the tea vintage it... I love the prim look. I started this in '09 while my father was dying."

When I make a quilt, I find that whatever is going on in my life at the time becomes imbedded in the fabric layers.  I might remember the time of year when I made it, or maybe that someone was sick.  And yes, I have a quilt in progress that I also worked on beside my Dad's bed the day before he died.  Kathy is the same way!  This quilt will hold both good and sad memories for her, I'm sure.

Thanks for sharing, Kathy!
