Hexagon paper-pieced quilt assembly


I've started assembling my paper-pieced hexagon quilt this week. It's been going surprisingly quicker than I anticipated. I hope to be done soon!


Here below is the layout of the stars and rosette blocks before assembly. Once I've assembled the blocks, then I will finish off the edges with background and partial blocks.


I've also, at long last, basted my Curio hexagon quilt (which I finished piecing almost 4 years ago...) and I've started machine-quilting the hexagon shapes. Its going to be a gift for one of my dearest friends that I met in high school.

Thrilled to see your hexagons at this stage, wonderful! Your second Curio quilt is going to make your friend very, very happy I'm sure.
